The Ambassador in the United Kingdom (Winant) to the Secretary of State

8280. From Hodgson. Lord Wright informed me Aug 15 that he will not propose to put Emperor’s name on list. He said he would await US action. He expressed similar views in respect preparing and adopting list of major Jap war criminals. His assistant Oldham confirmed these views and said Lord Wright had been misunderstood. [Hodgson.]
