Memorandum by the Adviser on Political Relations (Hornbeck)

We have clear indication that Admiral [Nomura] is having to try to “sell” to his Government (at least his Foreign Office) the project for an agreement between Japan and the United States, to which project the John Doe associates have been telling us that the Japanese controlling authorities (the backers of Colonel [Itakuro]) are already committed in principle.
