O'Sensei's 1930 Demo for Jigoro Kano

Most biographies of O'Sensei contain a reference to the October 1930 visit of Jigoro Kano, the founder of Kodokan Judo, to O'Sensei's temporary dojo in Mejirodai to view a demonstration of Aiki-Budo. All accounts reflect O'Sensei's demonstration significantly impressed Kano and resulted in his commenting at the conclusion, "This is my ideal budo." Kano subsequently assigned two of his valued students, Jiro Takeda, a seasoned Judoka, and Minoru Mochizuki, a rising star of the Kodokan, to study with O'Sensei.

While numerous references to the demonstration exist, I have been unable to locate details regarding the specific techniques demonstrated or the conversation that transpired between Kano and Ueshiba. Does anyone have detailed information regarding the demonstration?
