my telegram no.36,last paragraph.following from mr.lampson ：—"results of taking a lead are already apparent.mr.saburi left yesterday for Hankow and mr.mayer now has instructions to do likewise.meanwhile,am i right in enunciating the doctrine,as I have already done,that whatev er the exact legal interpretation of washington treaty may be we do not read it as meaning international guarantee against internal disruption,and that recognition of the south is thereby debarred ?I have stated the opinion that ob viously only the extermination of aggression was in contemplation．
