Memorandum by the Adviser on Political Relations (Hornbeck)23
Reference: Chungking’s telegram no. 481, December 8, 1941, 6 p.m.
From point of view of theory, these suggestions are eminently sound.
From point of view of practice, the suggestion made in paragraph five is probably impossible of serious consideration.
The suggestion made in paragraph six should in my opinion be given serious consideration immediately.
The suggestion made in paragraph four should likewise be given as to its purport serious consideration immediately.
