The Chinese Minister for Foreign Affairs (Soong) to Mr. Harry Hopkins, Special Assistant to President Roosevelt 65

Dear Harry: At the Casablanca conference when Far Eastern matters were discussed, China was not consulted as there were no representatives present. Only after decisions were made, were they communicated to the Chinese Government.

At the present interallied conferences,66 when the war against Japan is discussed, I trust I may be called in to participate so that the Generalissimo may be continuously consulted. I shall appreciate it if you could do anything to ensure it.

Yours sincerely,

Tse Vun Soong
