The Ambassador in France (Bullitt) to the Secretary of State

1038. Sun Fo84 who returned to Paris recently from Moscow said to me that his negotiations in Moscow had been most successful. The Soviet Government had promised to continue to supply China with arms and munitions on credit. He asserted that six Japanese divisions had lost all their heavy artillery and tanks as a result of the Yellow River inundations. He added that he believed that the Japanese offensive against Hankow would be held up for many months and reaffirmed the determination of the Chinese Government to continue to fight to the end.
