Memorandum by Colonel J. Hart Caughey to Mr. Liao Cheng-chi94

For your information the following instructions from the Generalissimo have been issued to General Chang Fa-kwei with reference to the status of Field Team Number 8 and use of the Communist radio in Canton.

“You should recognize the legal status of the Eighth Field Team and press on them to finish the evacuation of the Communist armed personnel within one month. During this month you should grant the request from the Communist team member to establish a radio station.”

Also for your information I have dispatched a radio to Colonel Miller95 embodying this information.
