The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in China (Stuart)

378. Your 425 of March 7 refers. I stand completely corrected. All of us here, Army included, had lost sight of Deptel 1302. My abject apologies to all concerned. I was delighted to get your reaction to Barr’s performance.

Army tells me they authorized him to proceed on this matter within 24 hours of receipt of request.
