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


2900. Hear on fair authority military convention between Germany and Bulgaria has been signed. It was on this account I was anxious that you should decide the question on Arabic with Bernstorff as soon as possible. Hear Germans and Austrians will invade Servia in a few days. I really think you should send me some information about Arabic case, conversations [with] Von Bernstorff, etc. Since the commencement of this incident the only information sent me has been copy of Von Bernstorff’s letter to you which you sent me five days after it had appeared in London Times.
