File No. 661.939/11a

The Secretary of State to the Consul at Harbin (Moser)


Stevens’s telegram of May 21, 7 a.m. The Department has had no reply as yet to its suggestions made on May 1 to Japan, Great Britain, and France, of which you were informed by the Legation. The American Government has not changed its attitude which has at no time favored the embargo. If embargo should be lifted now would it bring complaint of unneutral partiality towards Semenov?
