The Secretary of State to the Consul General at Canton (Linnell)

Your November 29, 1 p.m.78 Following for Yunnanfu:

“Your November 29, 12 p.m. The matter of possible American participation in the development of the Yunnan tin industry has been referred to the appropriate Government authorities who are of the opinion that American interests would not care to participate in this venture. One of the factors which have assisted the Department in reaching a decision not to encourage American participation is its traditional attitude in opposition to Government monopolies.”
