The Chinese Minister for Foreign Affairs ( Soong ) to the Assistant Secretary of State ( Clayton )
Dear Will: Enclosed please find copy of my letter to Secretary Morgenthau. I am anxious to get his confirmation before I leave for San Francisco,57 as I understand he is leaving for Florida tomorrow afternoon and will not be returning till next Tuesday.
In case I get his reply tomorrow I could return to San Francisco immediately; if not, I will be bogged down till next week; in which case I hope Ed58 will understand I am not a willing delinquent.
Thank you for your helpfulness in attending the conference this afternoon.
