[Received November 17, 8 a.m.]
21. Turkish authorities insist on searching all consulates and everything therein except archives. They desire our consular representatives to be present. I shall instruct consular representatives not to attend or be represented and shall inform authorities that they search at their own responsibility, and if they search I shall protest unless I receive contrary orders before Monday, until which day they promised to delay search.
