The Department of State to the Spanish Embassy
The Department of State has received with great interest the information embodied in the memorandum (No. J.5, Ex. 115.000–G) dated January 11, 194585 from the Spanish Embassy in charge of Japanese interests in the continental United States that the Japanese Government expects to carry out an exchange of nationals between Japan and the United States this year and is prepared to give special consideration to the repatriation of Japanese nationals held at the Tule Lake Relocation Center, Newell, California.
The Department awaits with interest the more detailed proposals which the Japanese Government will undoubtedly, in view of the above memorandum, soon submit.86
