Pera, May 3, 1912.
The Embassy can not arrive at a right comprehension of the facts from the telegrams of the Consul General, who renews urgent request for assistance of naval officer in making inquiry. I suggest that the Commander of the Scorpion, with whom I have consulted, and another member of the Embassy, if necessary, go to Smyrna for that purpose.
