The Consul at Amoy (MacVitty) to the Secretary of State

42. I have conferred today with the Japanese Consul General, my colleagues and the Chairman of the Municipal Council and it now appears possible that a solution satisfactory to all concerned may be arrived at soon. During my interview with the Japanese Consul General he agreed to drop his demand that the position of Chief of Police should be given to a Japanese and appeared more reasonable with regard to the question of additional Japanese police.
