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

1405. Your 406, December 29, 1 p.m. In a conversation which I had with Lo on December 12th he informed me confidentially that he intended to recommend to his Government that the present agreement concerning the court at Shanghai be extended. My French and British colleagues were similarly orally informed. It is our belief that the Minister for Foreign Affairs will eventually present to us for signature some document covering extension.
