The Secretary of State to the Deputy ECA Administrator (Foster)

Dear Mr. Foster: Attached is a copy of a letter from the Chinese Ambassador, dated August 15, 1949, with accompanying memoranda, requesting United States military and economic assistance. It will be appreciated if the Economic Cooperation Administration will give the Department the benefit of its comments on the Chinese proposals for economic aid. I suggest that after I have had an opportunity to study these comments we might meet to discuss them.

Sincerely yours,

Dean Acheson
