File No. 763.72/4787
The Consul General at Sofia ( Murphy ) to the Secretary of State
[Received May 19, 3.35 p.m.]
Audience with Minister for Foreign Affairs Wednesday. Received assurances that there would be no break in relations happily existing between the two countries. German-Austrian pressure is still very great but up to date has failed. Official circles in Bulgaria strongly in favor of friendly relations, public sentiment likewise. Newspaper reports of disturbances in Bulgaria entirely unfounded.
