The Chargé in Iran (Moose) to the Secretary of State

121. Referring to the Legation’s telegram 118, October 31, 10 a.m.29 The Minister for Foreign Affairs last evening stated that the Iranian Government intends to appoint a Chargé d’Affaires in Washington without delay meanwhile continuing its search for a good Minister for the post. The Foreign Minister added that he was unable to give the name of the person to be designated Chargé d’Affaires though he hoped to do so in a few days.

I expressed satisfaction and gratification that the Iranian Legation in Washington will be reopened.

Ali Akbar Daftary, brother of the Minister of Justice, is rumored to be a candidate for the post of Chargé d’Affaires.

Murray is being so informed by cable to Tangier.
