See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The German Foreign Secretary at the insistence of Kaiser Wilhelm prevented the German Ambassador from submitting proof of the innocence of Dreyfus to the French Cabinet, disclosures of secret documents dealing with the Dreyfus affair revealed.

A collection of archives of the German Foreign Office published yesterday contained dispatches from the German Ambassador to Paris during the Dreyfus trial, proving that the German secret service did not know Dreyfus whom they considered a victim of other German spies in the French General’s staff. The then Ambassador, Count Muenster, offered to convey this information to the French Cabinet but was prohibited from doing so by the Foreign Secretary acting under instructions of the ex-Kaiser.
