APPENDIX
LO FU‘S FAREWELL MESSAGE TO MAO TSE-TUNG

Comrade Tse-tung,

I have just undergone a major operation, which should be beneficial to my health. I sincerely thank you and other comrades of the Central Committee for your help. I must sever relations with my reactionary self of yesterday. Today, I read your comments on Mei Sheng‘s essay, Chi Fa, on machine guns and other subjects, and was greatly moved.

I did not call on you because I did not receive any notification from you. I descend the hills today. I hope to see you in Peking and to receive more instructions from you.

Forenoon, 18.08.1959
CHANG WEN-TIEN
