The Ambassador in China (Hurley) to the Secretary of State

1483. The Chinese Government has been so preoccupied with questions having to do with surrender, Communist relations, et cetera (re your telegram 1277, August 18, 5 p.m.) that it has been unable to give further consideration to the Berrigan-Isaacs cases. Furthermore a [Page 1482] new Minister of Information4 has just been appointed, and the Ministry is in process of reorganization.

I shall take up the cases again just as soon as it is possible or opportune to do so.5

  1. K. C. Wu.
  2. No record of further action on this matter has been found in Department files.
