Marshall Mission Files, Lot 54–D270: Telegram

General Marshall to Mr. Walter S. Robertson, at Peiping

115. Reference to 103 is understood. Your 96 received but no record here of 9511 to which it refers. Therefore don’t fully understand situation but suggest you send either a senior American representative or another team to Chihfeng and check report of Tourtillott which report sounds somewhat hysterical in view of Executive Headquarters order to Tu Li Ming to cease movement. Advise of your action promptly.

  1. Telegram No. 95, originally sent to Chungking on January 26, was re-sent on January 28.
