The Secretary of State to the Chargé in China (Robertson)

1935. Dept has been approached by Sat Eve Post which states “We assigned Edgar Snow to a tour of duty in China, to write articles for this magazine there. War Dept officials inform me that General Wedemeyer’s HQ has no objection whatever to having Mr. Snow work as a correspondent out of that HQ, but that the Chinese civil authorities consider him ‘unacceptable’”.

Please make inquiry of FonOff regarding this matter and report by telegram.
