The Secretary of State to the Consul General at Rangoon (Schnare)

40. For Lt. Colonel St. John, Ammisca from Adams.10

Begin paraphrase. All lend-lease items of a critical nature at Rangoon should be moved by you to the interior of China by every means available to you. The above is a direction of the Secretary of War. To accomplish this lend-lease funds necessary for wages, bonuses and transport may be obligated by you through Major Haywood, such action on your part being authorized, as a military necessity. The above is being communicated to Magruder. End paraphrase.

  1. Maj. Gen. Emory S. Adams, Adjutant General, U. S. A.
