963. Department’s 367, July 1, midnight.

I made further representations personally to the Minister for Foreign Affairs yesterday concerning the question of Japanese military travel permits in North China and requested information as to the steps which have to be [been] taken by the Japanese authorities in North China to exclude American citizens travelling therein from the restrictions under reference.
It appears from Peiping’s 156, July 5, 4 p.m., that American marines in uniform have already been exempted from the restrictions.
