1948

ByChihyun Chang

January 1: About 30 Commissioners came to say “Happy New Year” at 9 a.m. Then to Customs Club where I spoke to staff at reception. Very small crowd – more than 150, I should say. […] feel that 1948 is going to be like 1947 except worse, so far as the Customs is concerned, – yes, and China, too. Unless the civil war can be stopped, I don’t see how the country can avoid collapse, although what form a collapse would take is anybody’s guess.
