Announcing mission of July 28,1945
(translation follows)


Read this carefully as it may save your life or the life of a relative or friend. In the next few days, the military installations in four or more of the cities named on the reverse side of this leaflet will be destroyed by American bombs. These cities contain military installations and workshops of factories which produce military goods. They are determined to destroy all the tools of the military clique which they are using to prolong this useless war. But, unfortunately, bombs have no eyes, so in accordance with American well-known humanitarian principles, the American air force which does not wish to inure innocent people, now gives you warning to evacuate the cities named and save your lives. America is not fighting the Japanese people but is fighting the military group which has enslaved the Japanese people. The peace which America will bring will free the people from the oppression of the military and mean the emergence of a new and better Japan. You can restore peace by demanding new and good leaders who will end the war. We cannot promise that only these cities will be among those attacked but at least four will be, so, heed this warning and evacuate these cities. The list of doomed cities minted on the opposite side of the leaflet are Aomori, Nishinomiya, Ogak, Kurvme, Iohinomiya, Nagaika,Koriyama, Kakodate, U3iymada, and Tsu. _______________________________________________with high explosives incendiary
