The Secretary of State to the Chargé in Germany (Mayer)

70. Acting on the suggestions contained in your No. 185, of June 16, 7 p.m.,83 the Department has this afternoon discussed the matter with a representative of the German Embassy. We are informed that the Embassy has been instructed to request a postponement of the hearing set for tomorrow, June 17, and that the Embassy has so advised the American Agent. The Embassy, however, has no information from Berlin with regard to the sending of representatives to Germany to discuss the final settlement of the sabotage cases. Inasmuch as the two matters are closely allied, we have asked the German Embassy to ascertain as quickly as possible from Berlin whether the invitation has, in fact, the approval of the Foreign Office.
