The Consul General at Shanghai (Josselyn) to the Chargé in China (Robertson)7
Subject: Provisional Procedure Governing Adjustment of Registration of Land Held Under Perpetual Leases or Consular Deeds.
Sir: With reference to my despatch no. 3, dated November 22, 1945 on the above subject, I have the honor to transmit herewith copy of the Chinese text and translation of the reply from the Mayor, dated December 5, 1945, to the communication which I addressed to him on November 22 (enclosure no. 4 to my despatch of November 22). It will be noted that the Mayor states that the “certificate of other right” refers to the right of lease in perpetuity and is not intended to cause diminution of the existing rights or titles of American citizens.
