793.94 Conference/41: Telegram

The Ambassador in Japan ( Grew ) to the Secretary of State

479. Embassy’s 476 [475], October 15, 5 p.m., paragraph 2, Nine Power Treaty Conference. It may be well to record that one of the arguments which I used in my conversation with Hirota was that the proposed Conference would offer Japan a forum to present the views for which purpose it is sending so-called good will envoys to America and Europe.
