[To] Ambassador Wang Bingnan:

[We have] already telephoned to inform [you] our approval of postponing the twelfth meeting to 31 August (on Wednesday). After receiving this telegram, you should immediately inform [U. Alexis] Johnson by phone to make an appointment for him to come to your place for dinner on Sunday (28 August). The participants will be the same as the last time when he invited you. Please keep it a secret and select an inconspicuous place for dinner. [We will] send you another telegram on the talking points for the dinner.
