        Viscount Shibusawa's OFFICE
Mrs. Sarah M. Lockwood,
  1140 Fifth Ave., New York City.
                  Oct. 3, 1930
Dear Mrs. Lockwood :
  Your esteemed letter of July 30 addressed to Viscount Shibusawa was duly to hand. It was at once translated and submitted to him. He instructed me to thank you on his behalf for your cordial greetings to him and also to furnish you necessary data. With pleasure I have received your kind letter of Sept. 8, and thank you for your courtesy therein expressed.
  I was anxious to send you materials to be used for the purpose you have in view, and succeeded in doing so sometime ago except getting the autograph of the Viscount on his photograph. I have so far waited in vain on account of his slight indisposition. You know we who are attending to him are very anxious to have him save every bit of his energy as

his great age is gradually eating up his wont Herculean strength both of body and mind. I felt I should no longer wait for his autograph. This is why his unsigned picture is sent to you under another cover together with the rest of data. Knowing that it is your custom to have an autograph on the photograph when you give yours to your friend, I was unwilling to have his photo be sent to you plain, but at the same time did not like to hold back other data.
  Enclosed, please find the "Outline of Viscount Shibusawa's Life and Effort." This article was prepared by a close friend of the Viscount some years ago for a certain purpose, and I am supposed not to release it in the form as it is written. So, I am sending you this as a reference, under the bilateral contract between you and me that you are to accept my cordial, yet firm request to use only the facts contained in the article, couching them in your own tasteful style.
  The data just referred to are listed as follows :
   "Record of Townsend Harris in Japan."
   "A photo of the unveiling scene of the Grant Tree Monument."
   "A photo of the unveiling scene of the Harris Monument."
   "A photo of Viscount Shibusawa."
   "Two sets of picture cards.'''
   "Two copies of The Grant Monument and Trees in Ueno Park."
  Mr. Saji joins me for wishing you and Mr. Lockwood happiness and prosperity.
          Yours most cordially,
                   (Signed)
              K. Obata, Secretary

〔参考〕World's Work Aug., 1930. AMERICA AND JAPAN(DK390304k-0008)
第39巻 p.712 ページ画像

World's Work Aug., 1930.
        AMERICA AND JAPAN
  One result of the naval treaty is fresh assurance for Japan and the United States in their relationship toward one another. The treaty limits American cruisers to a point too low to permit a successful attack in Japanese waters. It places a similar limit on Japanese cruisers in American waters. This is all to the good. Only the jingoes in both nations will deplore the fact that their fleets have lost the chance to fashion an offensive weapon.
  American relations with Japan have been improving steadily in recent years. The break-up of the old Anglo-Japanese Alliance has been one factor in promoting confidence. The battleship limitation reached at Washington in 1922 is a second factor. Increasing trade has been a third. The new naval treaty ought to be a fourth.
  Only on one occasion in the past ten years, in fact, has an incident occurred which seriously checked the steady growth of good will between two neighbors on opposite shores of the Pacific. This incident came in 1924, when Congress passed the Japanese exclusion law over the protest of President Coolidge.
  It would cost us literally nothing to undo this act. If Japanese immigration were placed on a quota basis, the result would be to permit 190 people born in Japan to enter this country annually. This is in itself an insignificant number. But these 190 people would be restricted, under other provisions of the immigration act, to persons eligible for naturalization. This would result in actual exclusion of persons of Japanese blood, as they are not eligible for citizenship in any case.
  We could, therefore, accomplish precisely the same result merely by going about it in another way. In place of a special prohibition, directed against Orientals and therefore injurious to Japanese pride, we would theoretically put Japan on terms of equality with European nations.
  The whole thing is merely a graceful gesture. But graceful gestures are often useful.
