Mr. Runyon to Mr. Gresham.

No. 45.]

Sir: On receipt of your instruction No. 36* of December 22 last, in reference to an application for waiver by the German Government of microscopical examination in the United States of American bog products, I immediately brought the subject to which it relates to the attention of the Imperial German Government, in a personal interview sought by myself for the purpose with Baron von Marschall, imperial secretary of state for foreign affairs, and, while he gave no definite reply to my application, he promised an early answer. Up to this time, however, I have received none.

The subject will continue to have my attention.

I have, etc.,

T. Runyon.
