862.51 East Prussia/5: Telegram

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


104. Reference the Department’s 56, May 11, 6 p.m.

Approval of the city of Berlin loan “in principle” means permission is given for the city to contract a loan whose exact amount has not yet been approved. The city of Frankfort is also in this situation.
I hope tomorrow to be able to cable concerning the loan for East Prussia; this, I hear confidentially, is not regarded by the Ministry of Finance with entire favor.
