February 7, 1942 – Saturday

9 a.m. Another meeting of the Cabinet. The telegram, prepared in draft, was re-read and corrected and shown to the President for final approval. He then passed it to General MacArthur for transmittal to President Roosevelt. The telegram will someday become a historical document of tremendous importance. I hope it will be well received in Washington.

As a result of this work and worry the President has developed a fever.

  1. Was this a telegram proposing the withdrawal of both US and Japanese forces from the Philippines and the declaration of the islands as neutral?

    Also, I would really love to get in touch with the creator of this wonderful website and ask some questions about it. I would like to feature this website which is a superb idea.
