On March 7th, at Nanking, I pointed out to the Minister, and he agreed, that the Woo claims and the question of interest, being matters beyond the scope of the Commission, should be reserved for subsequent diplomatic negotiations between the two Governments.
Without being precise as to date or amount, I urged Wang to cause payment of further installments to be hastened. He stated that he would consult with the Minister of Finance with that end in view.
