The Consul at Vladivostok ( Caldwell ) to the Secretary of State


81. Your August 2, 6 p.m.1 Impossible state strength of following of Siberian government without information from western Siberia with which I have had no communication past month. Either [Page 333] Macgowan or Embry 1 willing to undertake trip to [Omsk?] via Peking and Mongolian route in effort to secure such information if Department considers expense and effort would be justified. Hardly practicable. Instruct.
