Description He condemns the assassination of Nationalist leader Sungchiaojen in Shanghai ("in which the Peking Government was seriously implicated") and the "unconstitutional" negotiation of a loan for 25,000,000 with the Quintuple Group by the Peking Government. He appeals to foreign powers to exert their influence in the preservation of peace in the Chinese Republic by preventing financiers and bandkers from providing the Peking Government with funds which will "undoubtedly" be used "in waging war against [the] people" and the Republic, thus plunging the country into a devastating conflict which may consequently also affect foreign interests in China. With letter from Foreign Office returning the telegram to Cantlie.
