The Ambassador in Great Britain ( Davis ) to the Secretary of State
[Received April 28—2:48 p.m.]
694. The Foreign Office informs me that the matter of continuing the Treaty of Alliance between England and Japan remains undecided. It is Lord Hardinge’s opinion that the status of the Alliance should be permitted to stand without alteration for another period of one year, at the end of which time he believes the situation may be more easily appraised than is possible now. It is expected that this view will prevail.
