On 8 October I met with Kim Il Sung and read him your letter.

Pak Heon-Yeong [Pak Hon Yong] was present during our talk and it was he who translated the contents of the letter.

Kim Il Sung recorded the contents of the letter into his working notebook.

The contents of the letter had a great impact on Kim Il Sung and Pak Heon-Yeong. It was obvious that they received it with great pleasure.

Kim Il Sung exclaimed “now our future is clear.”

Turning to Pak Heon-Yeong, Kim Il Sung said that we need to take serious measures in order to strengthen our position on the front and speed up the creation of more reserves.
