From: Second Spanish Empire To: Guangxi Clique CC: Germany, Japan, Anyone Else It May Concern It has come to our attention that among the vessels the Guangxi faction seized when it occupied Hainan in the ongoing hostilities between it and the other factions of the Chinese insurrection (of which we have no concern other than the safety of Spanish citizens) was a Spanish shipping vessel. We have made note of this due to the fact that this ship and its crew have not returned to any Spanish port. We can only conclude that the Guangxi clique has illegally seized this ship and its cargo, and potentially detained without informing the government of Spain, Spanish citizens. Naturally we demand the return of this ship, its crew and cargo, and the payment of reparations amounting to 25EP for this insult against our nation. Otherwise we shall find it necessary to take this matter into our own hands. From: Second Spanish Empire To: Germany CC: Italy We are glad that this incident has been cleared up. We hope that our diplomatic relations with the German Empire will be normalized, and the Madrid-Berlin Pact will remain in force, as we intend to continue to abide by its terms and respect the amicable relations it represents between the Spanish and German nations and peoples.
