The Ambassador in Germany ( Gerard ) to the Secretary of State


2854. I have had no news from you about submarine negotiations, notes, or position. Von Jagow complained to-day that he had no news whatever from Bernstorff; that as you have German cipher, communication of confidential nature by wireless is useless and that you refuse to transmit cipher to Bernstorff through me. Hope you will at least let me know what has happened and authorize me to inform Von Jagow.
