The Chairman of the Board of Directors, Standard Oil Company of New Jersey ( A. C. Bedford ) to the Secretary of State
[Received June 28.]
Dear Mr. Secretary: Referring to the conference I had with you on Thursday of last week with reference to Mesopotamia and the rights of the Turkish Petroleum Company, I beg to transmit herewith for the information of the Department, copy of the cablegram which I sent last night to Sir Charles Greenway of the Persian Oil Company, said cablegram having been agreed to at a meeting of the Executives of the several Companies held in my office yesterday afternoon.
As it is possible that the British Foreign Office may mention the matter to the American Ambassador in London, it has occurred to me that the Department might think it desirable to communicate the substance of the despatch above referred to, to the American Ambassador.
