The Consul General at Shanghai (Davis) to the Secretary of State
[Received January 23—7:10 p.m.]
51. Mayor Wu told me this morning that the Japanese Consul General called on him recently saying that he had instructions from Tokyo to adopt a stronger attitude in dealing with the local Chinese authorities and that these instructions were issued because the attitude of the Nanking Government toward Japan had changed. See my despatch No. 66, January 10th.43
Repeated to Department and Nanking.
