“Your 1610, October 25, 1 p.m. Cables were laid direct from Emden to Azores without touching any intermediate port, no part in operation at present. Operatives in Azores were Germans. There are 12 cables from Emden to England, 6 of them to Bacton and 6 Lowestoft. Number now in operation is unknown but repairs on those out of service are being rushed.”
