Abstract

The August 10 letter from twenty-four members of Congress caused a stir in the Japanese press, where the attacks on the exhibition from the veterans’ organizations had already made a strong impression.

How will you re-examine the contents of the script? Will you make any changes in the script we have received? If you make any changes, we would like you to give us an outline and schedule. After you make some changes, we would like you to send us a Japanese script with all changes immediately.
