General Marshall to President Truman38

35. Reference my message of 10 January39 giving detailed account of final phases of negotiations for termination of hostilities and the para headed “New subject: Last night, etc.”, on rereading message I fear I may have given impression that a formal proposal had been made to me to serve on committee of 3 military officials to develop the plan for nationalization of Armies of China.

Such was not the case. Only informal expressions of sentiments on the subject occurred.

  1. To be delivered also to the Secretary of State or Under Secretary of State.
