The Secretary of State to the Minister in China (Reinsch)


Warner2 telegraphs that there is great need of food in the Priamur [Page 179] and says investigation shows it impossible for food to fall into the hands of the enemy when shipped to that region.

The American Government would be glad to see the embargo lifted from food shipments to Priamur. The Department has received no reply to its telegrams of May 1 to Tokyo, London, and Paris concerning embargo.

  1. Langdon Warner, Vice Consul at Harbin.
