The Secretary of State to the Minister in China (MacMurray)

258. Your 404, September 18, noon. I desire you to have an interview with the Chief Executive and urge him to recognize the contract with the Federal Wireless. I cannot understand why the United States, which has been and is today the friend of China, should be discriminated against in favor of all other countries. If the Chief Executive does not intend to maintain the open-door policy for which we contend, let us have an answer at the earliest date possible. We shall then know where we stand on this matter.
