File No. 702.6211/221.

The German Ambassador to the Secretary of State .


Mr. Secretary of State: In reply to your kind note of the 21st instant, I have the honor most respectfully to say to your excellency that I should be very glad if the case of the Imperial Consul Müller could be discontinued.

Should your excellency deem it possible to discontinue the case I would be quite ready for my part to take into consideration a transfer of Consul Müller in the way of an exchange of posts with one of the other consuls in the United States.

Accept [etc.]

J. Bernstorff.
