The Chinese Minister of Finance (Kung) to the American, Ambassador in China (Johnson)96

Dear Ambassador Johnson: Now that the Hukuang and Chicago Bank loan settlements have been effected I desire to take up the case of the Pacific Development Loan. To this end I should appreciate your transmitting by telegraph, as you recently were good enough to do in the case of the Hukuang and Chicago loans, the attached communication to Mr. Lamont97 of Messrs. J. P. Morgan & Company which contains a proposal of settlement. Also I should appreciate having a copy furnished to the Chinese Ambassador at Washington.

Yours faithfully,

H. H. Kung
