Ambassador Guthrie to the Secretary of State.


My telegram of February 1, 11 a.m. The authority mentioned therein has just informed me that he has authority for the conviction that the statement given me by the Foreign Minister and cabled under date of February 9, midnight, does not contain all of Japan’s demands but that there are others whose exact nature he cannot state. Baron Kato has instructed the Japanese Minister at Peking to communicate the statement given me to Reinsch.
