Transfer to other neutral governments of the representation of belligerent governments in enemy countries by the United States upon the severence of relations with the countries concerned

[No attempt is made at a comprehensive publication of papers dealing with this subject, for the same reasons that most of the correspondence dealing with the taking over of particular interests in the various countries was omitted from previous volumes. (See the note in Foreign Relations, 1914, Supplement, p. 731.)

The correspondence which follows, concerning only the transfers effected upon the severance of relations with Germany, is typical of [Page 622]the procedure in other cases. Details connected with the transfer of consular representation and of funds, the closing of accounts, the final reports, etc., are omitted. Correspondence relating to the transfer of interests represented in Austria-Hungary is included in the section dealing with representation of the United States in Austria-Hungary by Spain. See ante, page 618.]
