The Persian Minister of Foreign Affairs ( Moshaver-ol-Mamalek) to the Secretary of State
[Received November 21, 1918, 12.55 a.m.]
Your Excellency: At the time when Persia greets in her Capital the American Relief Mission headed by the Honorable Professor [Page 572] Judson, I hasten to beg Your Excellency kindly to convey to the noble nation of the United States the heartfelt thanks of the Persian Government and people for that charitable and benevolent action. I am convinced that this further mark of friendship and good will given to Persia by the United States will draw still closer the ties of good harmony existing between our two countries and will enhance the Persian people’s friendship for the American nation and the growing esteem they profess for its Government, which in the days of trial always gives evidence of its true sympathy with Persia.
