O[ffice] is attempting to influence the German friends of the Armenians that they refrain from further public propaganda during the war. They have agreed to do so on condition that the opposite side also stops its anti-Armenian agitation in public, particularly in the press. Therefore, it seems to be desirable that the press be advised in confidence to leave the Armenian question alone in future, as far as possible, and that any articles appearing despite this should be stopped by the censors, if this is feasible.
Respectfully presented to AN for your information and with the request that further measures be taken as seen fit.
