1074. With respect to Lapham’s telegram to Hoffman and Moore sent from Shanghai June 11 (number unknown1) recommending certain changes in draft bilateral foreign aid program, Embassy fully concurs and recommends strong effort to employ language proposed. If Chinese resistance too strong, particular in view lateness of its introduction, then at least we could endeavor obtain Chinese oral agreement on these points.
