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

96. Your 174, March 13, 5 p.m.90 Department considers telegraphic or written instructions to you to attend the ceremonies as special representative of this Government will be sufficient, such instructions to be communicated by you to the Chinese Government.

Department expects to follow that procedure upon receiving from you the form of official invitation from the Chinese Government, unless the form of invitation particularly requests that special credentials be issued to this Government’s representative at the ceremonies, in which case the Department will expect to recommend the issuing of such special credentials by the President.
