TRANSLATION - Page 4 "A good many of the diplomatic representatives of the countries that had severed relations with Japan were to remain an addi- tional six months in Tokyo awaiting the arrangements being negotiated by the United States regarding their repatriation. Then they boarded the Japanese ship ASAMA-MARU in Yokohama. Since the Minister of Peru was on the same ship as Ambassador Grew, he did not hesitate to point out to the latter that the events had occurred in exactly the same way as he had reported to him in January of 1941, to which Mr. Grew, visibly unmoved, replied, 'Yes indeed, lamentably so; but what you reported to me was conveyed by me the same day to my Government.'10/ "During the entire voyage he11/ kept completely silent on this delicate matter while Dr. Rivera Schreiber adhered to his lofty idea of being under the international obligation of friendship between his country and the United States, for he felt that his information -- from the moment he had entrusted it to Mr. Grew -- belonged to the American Government and that it played an impor- tant part in its military and domestic policy. The Peruvian Foreign Office, which in due course had received the report on its Minister's interview in Tokyo with Mr. Grew, maintained the same lofty attitude and has done so until now. "The years which have elapsed, Mr. Grew's memoirs, and all the publications which have appeared about the attack on Pearl Harbor now allow a change to be made in the discreet stand of the former Peruvian Minister in Tokyo and call for a rectification. And this is the first time that it is being made public that on January 26, 1941, the American Ambassador in Tokyo was personally warned by the Peruvian Minister, Dr. Rivera Schreiber, on the strength of precise information, that the Japanese air force would attack the naval base at Pearl Harbor. American public opinion will surely realize the importance of this historic clarification." /s/ Teresa K. de Rivera Schreiber TERESA KROLL DE RIVERA SCHREIBER SUBSCRIBED AND SWORN TO BEFORE ME THIS THIRD DAY OF MAY 1963, A.D. /s/ C.
