Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt this morning of the Department’s telegram of the 29th.

Similar information to that contained in this telegram had already been received from Mr. Stern, and had been communicated to the Bavarian legation informally, and; to a German press agency. On the receipt of the telegram, however, a memorandum was prepared, a copy of which is inclosed herewith, and left with the Bavarian chargé d’affaires, who promised to communicate it to his Government.

I have, etc.,

Theodore Runyon.
