FOREIGN RELATIONS, 1937, VOLUME II
recently been fully preoccupied with the Asiatic Pact 19 and other im-
portant problems this step may be regarded as a distinct gesture of
good will towards us.
  In advising the Post Office Department informally of the above the
Department may wish to add confidentially that I have had several
conversations with the Director General of Posts in an attempt to
salvage as much as possible of the large quantities of books, maga-
zines, et cetera, which have not been delivered during the past 16
months. He informs me most of the material has been destroyed in-
cluding registered matter. When I expressed astonishment he im-
plied it was due to a mistake on the part of a minor official. I then
said I hoped that any claim for lost registered articles would be
promptly paid, to which he agreed at once.

  69. Legation's telegram No. 47, July 14, 10 a. m. I am glad to be
able to report that as a result of further informal representations the
local post office is now digging up old mail matter which was at first
believed to have been destroyed. The Legation and American na-
tionals have recently been receiving periodicals dated March, April,
etc., 1936, and I am hopeful that more will be forthcoming.
  Please inform Post Office Department but not for publication.
