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
