The Counselor of Embassy in Great Britain (Atherton) to the Secretary of State

302. Department’s 277, October 19, 2 p.m. Inquiry was made last week of the Foreign Office which stated the draft of Jafar Pasha’s communication had been referred to Baghdad and an answer was expected momentarily. I am further assured this morning that Colonial Office will appropriately press this matter.
