Memorandum of Telephone Conversation, by the Director of the Office of European Affairs (Matthews)

Under the Secretary’s instructions (conveyed to me by Mr. Dunn53) I telephoned Mr. Grässli, the Swiss Chargé d’Affaires, at 10:46 this morning. I referred to the communication just left with him by Mr. Wallner54 containing the reply to the Japanese peace move and asked him to request the Swiss Government to convey to the Japanese Government that this Government expects a prompt answer to the message communicated on behalf of the Governments of the United States, the United Kingdom, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, and China.
