November 3, 1941

My friend, Lt. Sidney L. Huff, our Naval Advisor, once told me that since Gen. MacArthur assumed CG, USAFFE he had repeatedly requested Washington to beef up Air Units in the Phil. Today, the encouraging development is the arrival of Maj. Gen. Lewis H. Brereton, USAAC, who will assume a new and bigger command named Far East Air Force.  This new command will replace the US Army’s Phil. Department Air Corps under the command of Brig. Gen. Henry B. Clagget USAAC who became the CG, V-Interceptor Group.

Lt. Huff also mentioned to me during our lunch today about a cable sent by US Ambassador to Japan, Joseph Grew, to the US State Department in Washington DC, warning of  “possible secret attack by Japan on US positions.”
