The Ambassador in Japan (Morris) to the Acting Secretary of State

I had an informal conversation with the Minister for Foreign Affairs this afternoon. I took occasion to refer to the Tientsin agitations [affair] in the tenor of your April 11th, 7 p.m. He advised me that he has telegraphed to Obata30 summary of facts, left with Vice-Minister for Foreign Affairs last week and has instructed Obata to make the necessary amends if it appeared from his investigation that any of the Japanese involved were at fault.
