Sir: Referring to Mr. Uhl’s dispatch No. 372, of the 3d instant, I have the honor to inform you that, although no reply has as yet been received to the embassy’s notes of April 30 and June 3, I have learned from our consul at Hamburg that Alfred Meyer has, within the past few days, been released from service in the German army as “dienstuntauglich” (unfit to serve).
