orgive me this cutting of red tape to appeal to you to enable me to help two faithful Japanese friends and cause the enclosed check to be given to Arata Endo, my faithful assistant in the building of the Imperial Hotel, Tokyo. Endo san may be reached through the doctor of the Tokyo Imperial University. If he and his family could be transferred to me at Spring Green, Wisconsin I would guarantee his independence (financially) of any government aid. His address is as follows: No. 4002, 8-chome, Sniina-machi, Toshima-ku, Tokyo.
And the manager of the Imperial Hotel at the time I built it was Aisaku Hayashi. I enclose a similar amount to help him. His address is 1410 Hase, Kamakura, Japan. If Hayashi san and his wife could be sent to Spring Green I should be glad to guarantee his independence of government aid. If one of your secretaries will advise me how this could be accomplishedif both these Japanese are willingI should appreciate it more than I can ever say. I feel greatly indebted to them for their immense loyalty.
And, General, may I commend your humanity toward the conquered. It is a bright spot in a dark picture.
