This morning, at 8:45, by invitation, I visited Prime Minister Kishi, and was informed that I was to receive the Order of the Sacred Treasure (the third class). This afternoon at 3:00, by invitation again, I visited Vice Minister Morinage (Finance Minister) and in the presence of quite a few people (the Chief of the Insurance Department for Japan, various other officers of the Finance Ministry, Mr. Hirose, Dr. Noguchi, Mrs. Huebner, and other insurance men of various associations) Mr. Morinage conferred the Order, which, I was informed, was signed by the Prime Minister, the Head of the Order Division of the Government, and by the Emporer.
