The Secretary of State to the Consul General at Canton (Jenkins)


Your telegram to the Legation, March 23, 1 p.m. The Associated Press has reported from Hongkong that the Kweilin rioting was a Communist movement against American missionaries, and it informally asks if this and other incidents, such as the picketing of the hospital at Canton, are a part merely of a general antiforeign feeling or are evidences that there is a special hostility against Americans. Has there been at Kweilin no molestation of missionaries of other nationality than American?
