The Ambassador in China (Stuart) to the Secretary of State

954. ReDeptel 538, May 3. I have been coming regularly to Chancery once a day without hindrance since May 3, and have been several other places in city. Guards were removed from my compound morning of May 6. There appears to be no obstacle now to my moving freely about city except after dark, when Communists reportedly stop both Chinese and foreign, although they have not announced a curfew.
