Ho Chi Minh's Telegram to President Truman

Image of the telegram from Ho Chi Minh to President Harry S. Truman dated February 28, 1946. 

In this message, he asks the American president to get involved in Vietnam's affairs as the Vietnamese government negotiates with the French government:

...to interfere urgently in support of our independence and help making the negotiations more in keeping with the principles of the Atlantic and San Francisco charters.

America took no action in response to that telegram.
