Minutes of Meeting Between General Marshall and General Pee 40 at No. 5 Ning Hai Road, Nanking, November 19, 1946, 5:30 p.m.

General Pee told General Marshall that the Generalissimo instructed him to report that Mister Carsun Chang, representing the major part of the Democratic Socialists, will probably come into the National Assembly tomorrow. The procedure will be settled sometime this evening. Apart from the Communists, about three-fourths or two-thirds of the opposition parties have now joined in the Assembly. Tomorrow the names of delegates will be announced to participate.

General Marshall thanked General Pee for this information and inquired what business was transacted by the National Assembly today.

General Pee stated that he did not know, but that the Generalissimo attended the Assembly this morning.
