BERLIN, July 9 (via London July 10 Saturday) .
The text of the German note is as follows:
The undersigned has the honor to make the following reply
to his Excellency Ambaumdor Gerard to the note of 'the 10th
ultimo re the impairment of American interests by the German
submarine war:
The Imperial Government learned with satisfaction from
the note how earnestly the Government of the United States
is concerned in seeing the principles of humanity realized in
the present war. Also this appeal finds ready echo in Ger
many, and the Imperial Government is quite willing to permit
its statements and decisions in the present case to be governed
by the principles of humanity just as it has done always.
The Imperial Government welcomed with gratitude
when the American Government, in the note of May 15, itself
recalled that Germany had always permitted itself to be gov
erned by the principles of progress and humanity in dealing
with the law of maritime war.
Since the time when Frederick the Great negotiated with
John Adams, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson the
Treaty of Friendship and Commerce of September 9, 1785,
between Prussia and the Republic of the West, German and
American statesmen have, in fact, always stood together in the
struggle for the freedom of the seas and for the protection of
peaceable trade.
RIGHTS OF CAPTURE AT SEA.
In the international proceedings which since have been con
ducted for the regulation of the laws of maritime war, Germany
and America have jointly advocated progressive principles,
especially the abolishment of the right of capture at sea and
the protection of the interests of neutrals.
Even at the beginning of the present war the Germun Government Im
mediately declared Us willingness. In response to proposals of the American
Government, to ratify the Declaration of London and thereby subject Itself
In the use of Its naval forces to all the restrictions provided therein lu fitor
of neutrals.
Germany likewise has been always tenacious of the principle, that war
should be conducted against the armed and organised forces of an entmy
country, but that the enemy civilian population must be spared aa far a
possible from the measures of war. The Imperial Government Jherlhesi the
definite hupp that some way will be found when-peace Is concluded, or per-
Imp.- earlier, to regulate the law of maritime war In a manner guaranteeing
the freedom of the seas, and will welcome It with' gratitude and satisfaction
If It can work hand In hand with the American Government on that occasion.
Denial of Guilt by German Government.
If In the present war the principle.? which should be the Ideal of the
future have been truversed more and more, the longer Its duration, the German
Government has no guilt therein. It Is known tn the American Government
how Germany's adversaries, by completely paralyzing peaceable traffic be
tween Germany and neutral countries, have aimed from the very beginning
and with Increasing lack of consideration at the destruction not so much of
the armed forces as the life of the German nation, repudiating In doing so all
upon Germany by Its adversaries and announced by them, It Is the sacred
duty of' the Imperial Government to do nil within Its power to protect nml
save the lives of German subjects. If the Imperial Government were derelict
In these duties It would be guilty before God and history of tho violation
Of those principles of highest humanity which are the foundation of every
national existence.
The case, of the Lusltanla shows with horrible clearness to what Jeopar
dizing of human lives the manner of conducting war employed by our ad
versaries leads, In tile most direct contradiction of International law all dis
tinctions between merchantmen and war vessels have been obliterated by
the order to British merchantmen to arm themselves und to ram submarines
and the promise of rewards therefor, and neutruls who use merchantmen
as travellers thereby have been exposed In nn Increasing degree to nil the
dangers of war.
Danger to Germans in Lusitania Case.
If the commander of the German submarine which destroyed the Lusl
tanla had caused the crew anil passengers to take to the boats before llrlng
n torpedo this would have meant the sure destruction of his own vessel.
After the experiences In sinking much smaller und less seaworthy vessels
It was to-be expected that n mighty ship like the Lusltanla would remain
above water long enough, even after the torpedoing, to permit passengers
to enter the. ship's boats. Circumstances of a very peculiar kind, especially
the presence on board of large quantities of highly explosive materials word
omitted, passlbly "dissipated" this expectation.
In addition It may he pointed out that If the Lusltanla had been spared
thousands of rase of munitions would have been ent to tiermany's enemies
and thereby thousands of German mothers and chllden robbed of bread
winners.

On November 3, P.M 4, Mngland declared the North Sea a War area, and by
planting poorly anchored mines and by the stoppage and capture of vessels
made passage extremely dangerous and dlfllcult for neutral shipping, and
by act n.i hy blockading neutral roasts and ports, contrary to all International
law. Long before the beginning, of submarine war England practically com
pletely Intercepted legitimate neutral navigation to Germany also. Thus
Germany was driven to a submarine war on trade.
on November II, I!'H, the Krurllah Premier declared In the House of
Commons that It was one of Mngland's principal tasks to prevent food for
the German population from reaching Germany via neutral port.s. Since
March 1 Kugl.ind has been taking from neutral ships without further for

Submarine Warfare a Necessity.
While our enemies thus loudly and openl pioclnimcd war wlthuot mercy
until our utter destruction, e were conducting n war In self-defence for our
national exlntenct and for the sake of p'race of an assured permanency. We
have been obliged to adopt a submarine warfare to met the declared Inten
tions of our enemies and tin- method of warfare adopted by them in contra
vention of International law.
With all Its efforts In principle to protect notur.il life and property from dam
age us much as possible the German Government recognized unreservedly In Its
memorandum of February 4 that the interests of neutrals might suffer from
the submarine warfare. However, the American Government will also under
stand and nppioelate that lu the light for existence, which has been forced
Would Instal Neutral Steamships.
In the spirit of friendship wherewith the German nation has been imbued
toward the Union and Its Inhabitants since the earliest days of Its existence
the Imperial Government will always be ready to do all It can during the,
present war also, to prevent the Jeopardizing of lives of American citizens. i
The Imperial" Government, therefore, repeats the assurances that Amerl-
can ships will not l hindered In the prosecution of legitimate shipping and
the lives of American citizens In neutral vcsels shall not be placed In
Jeopardy. ,
In order to exclude any unforeseen dangers to American passenger '
steamships, made posslhln In view of the conduct of maritime war by Ger- i
many's adversaries, German submarines will le Instructed to permit the
free and safe passage of such passenger steamers when made recognizable

The Imperial Government, however, confidently hopes the American Gov
ernment will mums to guarantee that these vessels have, no contraband on
board, details of arrangements for the unhampered passage of these vessels
to be agreed upon by the naval authorities of both shies.
In order to furnish adequate facilities for travel acio.-s the Atlantic for
American citizens, the German Government submits for consideration a pro
posal to Increase the number of available steamers by Installing In paseiigor
service a reasonable number of neutral steamships under the American Mag,
the exact number to be agreed upon under the same conditions as the above
mentioned American steamships.
The Imperial Government believes It can assume that In this manner
adequate facilities for travel across the Atlantic Ocean can be afforded
American citizens.
There would, therefore, appear to be no compelling necessity for American
citizens to travel to Kurope In time of war on ships carrying an enemy Hag.
In particular the Imperial Government Is unable to admit that American
citizens can protect an enemy ship through the mere fact of their presence
on board.
Germany merely followed England's example when tn- declared part
of the high seas an area of war. Consequently, accidents suffered by neutrals
on enemy ships In this area of war cannot well be Judgea dlffeiently from
accidents to which neutrals are at all times exposed at the seat of war on
land, when they betake thcm?ele Into dnngcrou localities in p!te of pre
vious warnings.
