The Chargé in China ( Mayer ) to the Secretary of State

429. My 419, September 20, 8 [5] p.m. Following from American consul general, Canton:

“September 23, 4 p.m. Referring to my telegram of September 19, 4 p.m. There were no pickets at Shameen gates today and indications are that boycott as constituted during the last year is coming to end. It seems certain however that British manufactured goods will still be under the ban. Antiforeign feeling continues very widespread.”
