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

567. On the afternoon of April 2 I handed to the Political Vice Foreign Minister the draft treaty “as a basis for negotiation” and as amended pursuant to Department’s 502, March 27, 5 p.m. I also handed him an explanatory memorandum with the changes described in that telegram.

Dr. Wu stated that the Chinese draft was almost ready and was being translated from Chinese into English. He said that he hoped that we could get to work on the matter very soon but there was a possibility that the Foreign Minister might wish to wait until after the Conference.58 I am to see the Foreign Minister tomorrow and may obtain from him more definitive information.
