Colonel J. Hart Caughey to Lieutenant General Alvan C. Gillem, Jr.
General Chou will return Sunday if Chang agrees to signing of short 3 paragraphs agreement39 with following change:
Insert words “and fair” in front of word “Readjustments” in paragraph 3 and inclusion in minutes of statement in bottom of page.
Chou favors this and I believe Chang will agree. Please contact Chang so you can let me know urgent. Chou’s return depends upon your reply. Chou redrafted 7 point agreement39 as follows:
- First paragraph same as first paragraph of short agreement.
- Paragraph 2, no change.
- Paragraph 3, insert “and fair” before “Readjustments”.
- Paragraph 4, no change.
- Paragraph 5, no change.
- Paragraph 6, delete.
- Paragraph 7, delete, and then enter it as a matter of record.
This is Chou’s alternative and may be used as basis for further discussion. Another less urgent message follows.40
