125 Cablegram From Casey to Menzies
Cablegram, Washington, 12 December 1951
Japanese Peace Treaty.
From discussions with Allison and Cowen, it would appear that ratification is to be expected by at latest end of March or first week in April. The Peace Treaty together with the Tripartite Pact with ourselves and New Zealand and Philippines, United States Treaty will be submitted to Senate as 'one packet'. When I saw President yesterday he said he saw no reason why Pacific Pact should not go through Congress without difficulty.
