Mr. Runyon to Mr. Gresham.

No. 227.]

Sir: Referring to my dispatch No. 224, of yesterday’s date, I have the honor to inform you that, according to statements made in last night’s official papers, there was an error made in reporting the text of the resolution adopted by the Staatsrath on the 15th instant, the words “ohne unserer Reichswährung zu präjudiziren” (without prejudice to the Imperial currency system) not having been contained therein.

Although the error is one of mere recital of the language of the Imperial chancellor and does not affect or qualify the action of the Staatsrath, I deem it proper to mention it in order that the State Department may have accurate knowledge as to the wording of the resolution.

I have, etc.,

Theodore Runyon
