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

64. My 56, May 29, 11 a.m. Clapp informs me he may accept tentative offer of Iranian authorities subject to Shah’s approval to appoint him Chief of Geological Survey with special reference to petroleum. I see no objection as the continuation of such contacts may prove helpful to American interests in general.
