The Secretary of State to the German Ambassador (Maltzan)

The Secretary of State presents his compliments to His Excellency, the German Ambassador, and has the honor to refer to Article XXVII of the Treaty of December 8, 1923, between the United States and Germany of Friendship, Commerce and Consular Eights, and to inform the Ambassador that according to a despatch dated January 25, 1927, from the American Ambassador at Berlin, the German Government interprets this Article liberally and accords the free entry privilege to the American non-commissioned personnel of American consulates in Germany.

The Secretary of State has the honor to advise the Ambassador, therefore, that upon the request of the German Embassy in each instance, the Department of State will arrange for the extension of similar free entry privileges to the German non-commissioned personnel of German consulates in the United States.
