General Note / OCR

Wesley Fishel explains to Ngo Dinh Diem about a recent trip some Vietnamese ambassadors took to the United States and explains that while good, help will not be immediately forthcoming. Fishel explains that there are four areas of concern to the American government and businesses: weakness of leadership, slowing of democratic development, the security situation, and administrative reform and reorganization. Fishel also writes of M. Tran Van Chuong and the mistake of agrarian reform in Vietnam.
