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with apparently no intention of leaving, I have to suggest that our flag and protection of this Government should be withdrawn from the German Legation until such a time as Russian forces actually enter Teheran, but that German subjects be allowed to remain here at the Legation of the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.
