The Secretary of State to the Vice Consul at Vladivostok (Henry)

23. For all American, British, Netherlands or other Allied prisoners liberated by Russian armies, Allied Red Cross societies placed at your disposal any part of POW relief goods now Vladivostok which Russians may be able to fly or otherwise rapidly transport to prisoner camps liberated by them. U.S. army advises that Allied prisoners in Japan will be served directly from advance U.S. Quartermaster stores and does not therefore contemplate movement Vladivostok POW goods to Japan.
