Colonel House to Aimaro Sato
Thank you for your letter of May 8th enclosing the memorandum.
I shall take up the matter informally with Washington when the time seems opportune. At the moment, I am afraid, it could not be given that calm consideration which its importance justifies.
Please be assured that I shall always do what I can to help maintain the good relations which exist between our two countries.
I shall remember with much satisfaction our conversation of the other day, and I shall look forward to seeing you soon again.
I am, my dear Mr. Ambassador,
Edward M. House
115 East 53rd Street,
