Chairman [Mao Zedong] and Liu [Shaoqi], Zhu [De], Chen [Yun]:

Last night, in accordance with instructions, I gave Roshchin [a telegram] of five articles.  He has just replied with a telegram.  Filippov’s telegram agrees with the Chairman’s thinking: delaying without laying [our] cards on the table is the best plan.  Fortunately, the Chairman stopped yesterday’s telegram from being sent out.  Now today’s telegram is drafted as a new document, please check/approve and send.

Returned, Zhou Enlai

Six o’clock, December 8 [1950]
