Telegram from Baron Kogoro Takahira

Takahira, Kogoro, Baron, 1854-1926
Japanese Minister of Foreign Affairs Takahira wants to convey to President Roosevelt that the Russian battleship Knyaz Suvorov (also spelled Kniaz Souvoroff) went down. Takahira mentions that four additional Russian battleships have gone down. According to Takahira, the Japanese fleet seized a torpedo-boat destroyer, where they found the wounded Russian Vice Admiral Rozhestvensky (also spelled Rojestoeusky). Takahira urges others to keep this information quiet until publication.
