The Minister in Persia ( Caldwell ) to the Secretary of State


Turkish Ambassador has returned and resumed charge of Turkish Embassy. German Minister being yet in Persia with apparently no intention of leaving, I have to suggest that our flag and protection of this Government should be withdrawn from the German Legation until such a time as Russian forces actually enter Teheran, but that German subjects be allowed to remain here at the Legation of the United States. Instruct by cable.
