"Public opinion is, to a large extent, pro-German and likewise anti-British. Consequently a favorable basis for our political aims. At present public opinion is not yet too active against court and financial circles. It would be advantageous if Russian readiness for an understanding with Japan could be made more strongly noticeable. Apart from an improvement of the political atmosphere, the endeavors for an improvement of a German- Japanese exchange of goods via Siberia, which are under way, could be favorably influenced hereby.
