Editorial comments: Authorship of the document is unclear. Presumably it was designed to guide Scowcroft and Eagleburger on their secret mission to Beijing following Tiananment Square. Perhaps a copy was handed to the Chinese Government. For an account of the mission, see Bush and Scowcroft A World Transformed (1998), pp105-11.
