Lieutenant General Alvan C. Gillem, Jr., to General Chou En-lai at Yenan 36

346. Additional word from General Marshall which I have just received indicates that it is extremely important for you to return, as soon as possible, to Chungking to continue discussions regarding entry of field teams into Manchuria. I will send my C–54 to pick you up on Saturday if C–47 that took you up to Yenan has returned. Please advise.
