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

No. 1605

Sir: I have the honor to enclose for the Department’s information a copy of the Legation’s instruction of today’s date to the American [Page 635] Consul General at Shanghai,94 commending him for his detailed and timely despatch No. 8327 of June 10, 1932, to the Department,94 on the subject: Expiration of Agreement Relating to Chinese Courts in the International Settlement. The Legation is in full accord with Consul General Cunningham’s belief that it is imperative that the existing agreement be revised in order that the court may be made to function as an effective and independent judicial organ.

Respectfully yours,

Nelson Trusler Johnson
