The Stimson Note 1. The Note of January 7th, 1932

IN considering the two incidents: (1) that of the Note of January 7th; and (2) that of the proposed invocation of the Nine Power Washington Treaty in the following February, the information provided in later years by Mr. Stimson and others will be utilised. In the case of Mr. Stimson that is requisite, if only because statements made by or attributed to him have been the chief basis of criticism since the publication of his book in 1936. But, of course, constant reference will be made to the information available to the British public at the time.
