The Chargé in Japan (Dooman) to the Secretary of State

267. Department’s 156, June 8, 3 p.m. I spoke today to the Vice Minister for Foreign Affairs63 along the lines desired by the Department. Sawada expressed regret that the attitude reflected by the British officials in Tientsin “left no room” for conciliatory discussions with them by the Japanese. He added however that Caldwell enjoyed the confidence of both sides and that “it would be helpful if he could use his good offices.”

Repeated to Chungking, Tientsin, Shanghai.
