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


The Japanese Chargé, Shigemitsu, has just told me that on February 28 Ambassador Debuchi41 was informed by Assistant Secretary Castle of the Department’s decision to drop negotiations on extraterritoriality with Dr. C. C. Wu at Washington, owing to dissatisfaction with the Chinese Minister’s attitude, wherefore negotiations had been transferred to China.
