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

[Telegram]

Persian Government protests to this and other Allied Legations against an alleged violation of the sovereignty and independence of Persia, claiming military forces under British and French officers financed by the United States and Allies are being organized at Urumiah. Have replied that this Legation is without information about the matter. Our enemies are endeavoring to make capital of the accusation.
