345. ReDepts 128, January 20. Further shipment of food packages and medicines has been assembled by Amcross38 with a view to early shipment to Vladivostok. Since Soviet Government has now agreed in principle to a second transfer of relief supplies at Nakhodka Bay, it is hoped that Embassy will be able soon to obtain Soviet authorization for this shipment to go forward. In view of the time interval since the last shipment, we are desirous that further supplies [Page 1057] be ready for transfer to Japanese vessel as soon as possible after agreement in the matter has been reached between Soviet and Japanese Governments.
