File No. 705.6259/–

The Swiss Minister ( Ritter ) to the Secretary of State

Sir: I have the honor to advise you of the receipt of a cablegram from my Government, according to which—

The Government of Denmark has offered the German Government to take care of the German archives on the Danish West Indies, recently ceded to the United States.

Our Government adds that it agrees with the foregoing, inasmuch as there is no Swiss consulate on the said islands.

Accept [etc.]

P. Ritter
