1895年李鴻章有關台灣授受作業的英文電報兩則 【Comment】 大家都知道，李鴻章與李經方簽署完成〈馬關條約〉之後，李經方被依約派來點交，可是李經方已台灣叛亂為由推三阻四。以下是當時李鴻章給日本總理伊藤博文的電文兩則1895.05.21 及1895.06.07： 第一封電文提及「台灣的sovereignty已經移轉給日本…」（As the 褐藻醣膠 sovereignty of Formosa has been transferred to Japan, ...），以及唐景崧總督奉旨撤離所有中國文武官員（唐景崧並非逃亡，而是奉旨撤離）。 第二封電文提及：「履行〈馬關條約〉移轉台灣之規定…」（effected the fina 土地買賣l transfer of Formosa in accordance with Shimonoseki Treaty）與「由於日本已經擁有台灣的sovereignty並任命總督行使統治權力…」（As Japan is now vested the sovereignty of Formosa and has appointed a governor to assume control） 這是 永慶房屋李鴻章方面以英文發出的電報，不能再誤以為當年只有「管理之權」之移轉。電文是我打字的，若有誤植請惠予告知。 Tientsin May 21 1895 3-15 p.m. Rec'd " " " His Excellency Count Ito Kioto.
