Ciphergram No. 11462

From…Saigon……dispatched on 9.5 at 13:00……..received on 9.5. at 10:33 hours……

Came in to the Decoding Department…9.6 at 15:00 hours…………………………………..

Spasowski

Your [cable] 10016.

The invitation to Nhu occurred through the communication [liaison] mission on the evening of the 1st [of this month] for two [o’clock] in the morning.

The chief of the mission contacted me directly in the morning regarding this matter. Without your instructions it was not possible to reject the invitation, and besides I took into consideration the suggestions of the Soviet comrades.

Making it seem as if it were a visit at the palace [organized] by [way] of a formal invitation is no longer feasible. The Canadian [Ambassador Cox] and the Indian [Ambassador Goburdhun] were already [formally] invited by Diem-Nhu in the days prior [to my visit].
