The Consul General at Hankow (Adams) to the Secretary of State

3. Communists are heavily attacking Hwangpei city 20 miles north of Hankow. Although Shekow, 10 miles north of Hankow, is protected by strong military trenches, I have, as a precautionary measure, advised the American women and children of the Lutheran Theological Seminary there to withdraw therefrom for a few days. Legation and Nanking informed.
