The Consul General at Tientsin (Fuller) to the Secretary of State

Japanese interference radio to Peking has now ceased. Railways again blocked, but by railway wrecks. Chihli troops continue receiving heavy reenforcements. Tuan troops still retreating toward Peking. My position [at] all consular body meetings has been to prevent any possible action which might be construed as favoring either faction. All quiet at Tientsin, British Admiralty Admiral arrived today, also two Japanese destroyers.
