No. 781.]

Sir: I inclose herewith, for your information and the embassy files, copy of a memorandum1 furnished to this Department by the German embassy stating the intention of the German Government to send two officials to the United States to confer with the presidents of the Equitable, the New York, and the Mutual Life Insurance companies with a view to reaching an arrangement by which these companies may be enabled to resume business in Prussia.

I have communicated this information to the presidents of the three companies named.

I am, etc.,

John Hay.
