The Chargé in China (Robertson) to the Secretary of State

1893. Note from the Foreign Office has been received by the Embassy containing a petition from the Minister of Agriculture and Forestry for the proposal of technical collaboration in Agriculture and Forestry between China and the U. S.

Reourtel 1846, October 22 [23].

The petition does not contain the request for an Extension Specialist as the Minister probably informed Mr. Dawson just before he left for Shanghai. Dawson assumes omission was due to oversight. He will discuss with Minister who is now in Shanghai and advise. Some further comments on the type of specialists within the fields mentioned are covered in another memorandum being transmitted today.46
