Memorandum of the Secretary of State

German Ambassador called in response to my suggestion that he exert his influence in behalf of the negotiation of a treaty similar to those signed with the twenty-seven other countries. Gave him copies of the British, French, Russian, and Netherlands treaties. He expressed great interest in the subject and said he would send them to Berlin and do what he could to induce his Government to join in a similar treaty.
