View of State Department as to Action Regarding Armenia

OCTOBER 16, 1915

WASHINGTON. Oct. 15.--The united States Government has done all it can, officially, toward relieving the condition of the Armenians in Turkey, in the opinion officials. They told Representative John J. Eagan of New Jersey today that beyond making informal representations to the Turkish Government through Ambassador Morgenthau, pointing out the bad effect upon public opinion in the United States of the treatment of the Armenians, nothing further could be done.

Representative Eagan had inquired as to the conditions among the Armenians and concerning the policy of the United States in the matter.
