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


188. During diplomatic hours yesterday the Chinese Minister, Alfred Sze, called on me without appointment and informed me of the receipt by him of a cable from the Nationalist Government inquiring as to his willingness to continue as “China’s representative” in Washington. I was informed by Sze that his reply was in the affirmative. I merely thanked him for the information and made no comment. There was no further conversation beyond this.
