Memorandum by the Minister in China (Johnson)12

In the course of a conversation today with the Minister for Foreign Affairs, the latter volunteered the information that everything had been settled in connection with the expedition of Dr. Roy Chapman Andrews. He said that he was writing a formal letter concerning this matter very shortly. He said that everything was now settled.

I told him I was very glad to hear this and I would telegraph this information to Dr. Andrews who was very anxious to hear about the matter.13
