240. Referring to my telegram No. 239, May 12, noon. At a meeting of the Chinese and Japanese delegations of the Joint Commission held yesterday afternoon at this Consulate General the Japanese delegation officially but orally informed the Chinese delegation that the entire Japanese Army in Shanghai area would be withdrawn in about a month’s time, at the latest about June 10th. The Commission [delegation?] stated that the Commission would be officially informed very shortly.

Repeated to the Legation.
