Colonel William J. Donovan,

Dear Colonel Donovan,

This is to introduce Mr. E. H. Norman of the Department of External Affairs who is at present doing general Far Eastern intelligence work in Ottawa. I believe both you and Professor Langer know about him and his work and I would appreciate anything you can do to help him establish a liaison with your office here.

Yours sincerely,

Told them to get in touch with Kimbel and Lewis and they agreed to use the courier they use between Canada and the legation here, and will give us the use of his services.
