To the Acting Secretary of State

September 26, 1946 OSE 464. Radio No. GOLD 1565 Nanking, China

There is an urgent economic need for rehabilitation of Hankow-Canton-Kowloon Railroad which is not related to military activities. This project and the initial or first year requirements for the Yellow River bridge project appeal to me strongly, and I do not think can well be confused with general restrictions on aid to Government of China at this time.
