[Telegram.]

Answering your March 5 and 6. Have been protesting against forced loans Americans and other foreigners not having official representation [Page 992]here and am yet protesting and advising nonpayment except by force. Tried to give you timely information but all my telegrams were suppressed by authorities here.

Davis.
