Mr. Lauchlin Currie to President Roosevelt 24

Re: Attached cable from Madame Chiang Kai-shek.25

I think the reason behind this request is not so much for consultation as for morale boosting, and as such would be very desirable.

If Mr. Hopkins goes I do not think my presence would add a lot. On the other hand, if Mr. Hopkins is unable to go I believe I still have a lot of prestige in China as your representative.

You will note that an immediate reply is requested.
