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

471. My 466, October 9, 4 p.m.36 Following from American consul general at Canton:

“October 11, 2 p.m. Kuomintang and strike committee issued lengthy statements yesterday declaring boycott ended but reaffirming intention to carry into effect ‘economic struggle’ with renewed vigor against the British and imperialists generally throughout China. A few Chinese came on the Island37 today but the general public seems very slow to resume pre-strike relations, and it is still too early to judge the situation. There were no disorders.”
