Balfour Says German-Americans Should Use Their Influence

OCTOBER 9, 1915

LONDON, Saturday, Oct. 9.--Arthur J. Balfour. First Lord of the Admiralty, in a Letter expressing regret at his inability to attend the meeting to be held by the Lord Mayor at the Mansion House next Friday to start a fund for the relief of Armenian refugees, says with reference to the massacre of Armenians:

"It is a crime surpassing the worst deeds of the Turks. As the Turks are entirely depend upon the Germans for support the Germans surely could, if they would put an end to so disgraceful a condition of affairs, and I should hope that the German-Americans, who must be anxious to save what remains of Germany's good name, would use their influence to check a continuance of these purposeless barbarities."
