WASHINGTON. Juno 4. Ambas
sador Gerard cabled the State depart
ment today a note from the German
government agreeing to pay an in
demnity for the damage done by a
German submarine to the American
steamer Gulflight, torpedoed off the
Teat of No.
The text of the note, which was elgned
by the minister of foreign affaira, fol
lows: "Referring to .the note of May 2S. the
Undersigned has the honor to inform hla
excellency, the ambassador of the United
Plates of America, Mr. Gerard, that the
examination undertaken on the part of
the German government concerning the
American steamers Gulflight and Cuss
ing haa led to the following conclusions:
"In regard to the attack on the steamer
Gulflight, the commander of a German
submarine, saw on the afternoon of May 1
frt the vicinity of the Scllly lslanda a
large merchant steamer coming In his
direction, which was accompanied by two
smaller vessels. These latter took such
positions In relation to the steamer that
they formed a regulation aateguam
gainst submarines; moreover, one of
them had a wireless apparatus, which is
not usual with small vessels.
No fcotrI Marking.
'From this It evidently was a enso of
English convoy vessels. Since such ves
sels are regularly armed, the aubmarine
could not appear and approach the
steamer on the surface of the water
without running the danger of destruc
tion. It was, on the other hand, to be
assumed that the steamer waa of con
siderable value to the British govern
ment since It was so guarded. The com
mander could see no neutral markings
on It of any kind, that Is. distinctive
marks painted on the free board, recog

usual on neutral ahlpe In the English
