The Minister in China (Reinsch) to the Acting Secretary of State
[Received May 26, 6.12 p.m.]
American University Club of China, 400 American university men, request transmission resolution in the same spirit as my telegram May 22, 1 p.m. Peking Missionary Association composed of 200 American and British missionaries addressed resolution to home Governments expressing great concern stating that nation-wide movement in China resulting from disappointment is likely to grow in strength and persist if it is ignored and its aspirations disregarded and will menace the peace of the Far East. They fear that the conditions that [omission] change possible, their helpful work may be destroyed unless some sort of confidence in the western nations can be restored.
This resolution and many others telegraphed from all parts of the country will be sent to you by mail. Foreign and Chinese persons stirred as never before.
