Consul Hughes to Mr. Grosvenor—(Received at the Foreign Office, July 23)

(Confidential)
(Extract)
Shanghae, May 30, 1883

IN my despatch No. 53 of yesterday I reported the arrival at this port on the 28th instant of his Excellency Li Hung-chang. I mentioned that Vice-Admiral Willes called yesterday upon his Excellency, and that I was present on the occasion. After a long conversation on various subjects, Li inquired respecting the probability of the Corean Treaty being ratified. The Admiral informed him that there would be some delay, as both German and English merchants objected to the high rate of duties, and especially desired that the coast trade should be thrown open. The Admiral asked if Li would give his assistance in removing these obstacles. Li replied that it would be time enough to discuss these points after the ratification of the Treaty, but could not be induced to give the assurance that his influence would be exerted in the desired direction. He mentioned that by a letter lately received from Corea he learned that Mr. Aston had discussed these very questions with the Coreans, but without success, and added that the fact of the Americans having ratified their Treaty made any change in ours now more difficult.
In reply to another question, Li said that on political grounds he thought that the earlier our Treaty was ratified the better.
On the Admiral expressing a hope that the difficulty with France might soon be settled, Li assented with evident sincerity. He went on to say that Annam and Corea were on a like footing, both being tributary dependencies of China. He could not therefore understand why a nation with such vast commercial interests as England should not make a Treaty with Annam as well as with Corea. Why should England and other countries make Treaties with Corea, and leave France the monopoly of Annam, England especially, with India and the Straits Settlements so near? Why should the Admiral not proceed to Annam and make a Treaty now? If he did, Li would promise him his aid in obtaining most favourable terms. He would do more; he would engage to exert his influence in obtaining the desired changes in the Treaty with Corea. The Admiral informed his Excellency that it is our wish to maintain peaceful relations with all countries, but he would acquaint Her Majesty’s Government with the offers now made. Li hoped he would do so, and remarked that the Chinese Minister in London had already mentioned the subject to Her Majesty’s Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs.
