My dear General Hurley,

I am very happy in receiving your letter dated December 21st of last year. I should apologize, first of all, for not being able to give you an earlier reply.

I fully share your un-shakeable confidence in the friendship between China and the United States. I particularly appreciate the recent statements made by your government on its policy towards China. It is generally understood that this gratifying turn of events is to be attributed to your untiring and enthusiastic effort. The contributions you have made towards fostering better relations and co-operation between our two countries are fully recognized and appreciated by the Chinese people.

The tremendous task of bringing about peace and unification of China has had its initial success as result of General Marshall’s carrying on to consummation what you had originally commenced. I am certain that you must be gratified with this achievement which is, after all, what you have been hoping for. As you have requested, I can assure you that I have spared no effort in giving to your eminent successor, General Marshall, the most staunch support, friendship and co-operation He has indeed left with me the same profound impression as you have.

I am now asking General Marshall to be good enough to bring you two pieces of embroidery with my warm greetings and personal regards.

Yours ever sincerely,

Chang Chi-chung

General Patrick J. Hurly
