His Excellency,
Colonel Holmes,
H.M.B. Administrator of G.N.G.,

Your Excellency;

In pursuance of the last paragraph of our agreement of September 17th, the papers relating to the personal status of the Officials of the Colony shall be handed over to a German Official designated by me.  I have the honor to propose that these papers be delivered to Judge Weber in Rabaul.  In case Your Excellency acceeds to my proposal, I beg leave to communicate in the matter with Mr. Weber.

Your Excellency asked me some time ago about an official confirmation regarding my official position in the Colony.  I believe Your Excellency will find everything required in the papers relating to my personal status, and I have the honour to suggest your taking insight into these papers.

I have the honor to be,
Your Excellency's most obedient servant,

(Sgd.) E. Haber
representing Imperial German Government.
