Memorandum by the Secretary of State of a Conversation With President Truman

China White Paper

I informed the President of the reasons for the postponement of the date of publication for one week, and of the possible objections by the NME. The President was of the opinion that we should proceed with the publication as now planned.

I told him also of my discussion with Senator Connally and he approved the arrangements for cooperation with the Committee which we were now making.
