Brigadier General William D. Connor

to George C. Marshall

November 22, 1924 Tientsin, China


1. I desire to express to you my gratification at the prompt and efficient manner in which you took the necessary measures to meet the varied and changing situations confronting your Command during these past six weeks of Chinese Civil War.

2. The handling of your Command was especially commendable in that you had but recently arrived at this station and had had only a short time in which to familiarize yourself with the local plans and problems, which, by their peculiar nature, required unusual tact, patience, and foresight in bringing about their successful solution.
