The Secretary of State to the Minister-Counselor of Embassy in China (Clark), at Canton

TelCan 391. Pls convey fol to Acting President Li from President Truman:

“My dear Mr. President: Dr. Kan Chieh-hou called on me on June 22 and presented me with your frank and thoughtful letter of May 5 for which I am very appreciative. As Secretary Acheson has only recently returned from Paris, I have not yet had an opportunity to discuss with him at length the substance of your communication and of my conversation with Dr. Kan. I may assure you, however, that the US Govt, is deeply concerned over recent events in China and will give serious consideration to the points raised in your letter.

With kindest regards, Sincerely yours, Harry S. Truman.”
