The Acting Secretary of State to the Ambassador in the Soviet Union (Harriman)

542. ReEmbs 649, March 6. We trust that in replying to Japanese communication Soviet authorities will not fail to state that it is our intention to ship additional supplies to Vladivostok in time for loading on a Japanese ship to be sent under any arrangement that may be made. Since there are only a few hundred tons of supplies now at Vladivostok, it would be most unfortunate if the impression were conveyed to the Japanese that only these supplies were involved.
