The Consul General at Shanghai (Cunningham) to the Secretary of State

I am informed by Japanese colleague compulsory pilotage not in existence in Japan. Possibly an error made in paragraph 5 of my November 24, 2 p.m.,90 therefore request that I be informed at earliest possible date whether compulsory pilotage exists by law in principal United States ports for merchant vessels.

Repeated to the Legation.
