Summary Note

Kenneth took a plane to Hanoi to be the guest of Governor Tri. He was sent in lieu of a man named Phillip Jessup who was supposed to have a special mission on behalf of President Truman to Hanoi, to be Tri's guest and to survey the situation in the countryside. When Kenneth was in Saigon, he was instructed to impersonate Phillip Jessup because Truman had switched Jessup's orders and sent him posthaste to India.
