Explanation of the Two Documents
Handwritten English translation of a Japanese original that was later typed up to become the document "Explanation of the Two Documents." The original document is from the Chief of Archives Section of the Foreign Ministry, HAYASHI, Kaoru. The translation discusses the classification index of the Foreign Ministry records compiled in 1936 plus subsequent records from after 1936. It escaped burning and became a document used to to determine which documents had been lost. HAYASHI concludes that he made a complete search before writing his affidavit to determine which, if any, documents pertained to the CHANG KU FENG Incident and found that none did.
