The newly unveiled flag of the Sìchuān Jì. To: The Heavenly Kingdom of Tibet, Yúnnán Jì From: Sìchuān Jì Friends, comrades, brothers! We thank you for your support in obtaining our independence from the treacherous Qing Autocracy in Beijing. We hope that our cooperation will not end with the inevitable outcome of our War of Independence, and will continue past this conflict. To: The Empire of Great Japan From: Sìchuān Jì We understand and admire your loyal support for your allies the Qing government in its "endeavor", no matter how treacherous or bloody it is. However, you have said yourself that the Qing Autocracy is unable to properly govern its provinces. Thus, you yourself must see that the Qing Dynasty is a fallen Dynasty, a failed state, in essence. There is no use in supporting an Empire that has fallen beneath the earth itself. You also have said that you will "take steps to ensure a future of stability in the former Chinese Empire". The lands of China will never see stability under the Qing. Note that we are not asking yourselves for your powerful support. Rather, we are humbly asking for your acknowledgement of our independence. Thank you for considering this request. We do not wish to unify the rest of China. As far as we are concerned, the Empire of Great Japan can undertake whatever measures it sees fit east of Sìchuān, so long as we have our independence guaranteed by your great empire. To: Guăngxī Jì From: Sìchuān Jì Your assault on the Republican Province of Guǎngdōng has not gone unnoticed by us. Note that if you take any more aggressive measures against any single Chinese man, apart from any sent by Beijing of course, we will join our brothers in Yúnnán in war against you. To: The German Empire From: Sìchuān Jì We completely understand your support for the Qing Autocracy. However, it must be known that it is no longer possible for the Qing Dynasty to rule over all China. The Tibetans, the Mongolians, the Yúnnánese, the Turkic Peoples, the Republicans, the Xīnjiāngese, and yes, the Sìchuānese, none of these groups will ever accept the Qing as their overlords. We hope that in only a couple of years, you will be able to reconsider this statement. OOC: This will not go well for me. EDIT: TLK, as he is currently unnamed, I would like my warlord to be called Zhu Zhonggong.
