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

Chinese Postal Administration wishes to acquire German post office in Legation quarters. As this question comes under the cancelation of the 1901 protocol between China and Germany, my colleagues consider with me that it must be subordinated to arrangements to be reached at the Peace Conference. Similar telegrams went to British, French and Japanese Governments. I request your instructions.
