The Minister in Iran (Dreyfus) to the Secretary of State

316. Reference my telegram 191, June 9 and despatch 279, June 11.17 Prime Minister called me today to express his deep concern over [Page 242] failure of American Government to respond to his many requests for advisers, particularly Food Administrator and financial mission. He said he had promised the Majlis on occasion of expulsion of Japanese Legation18 and when other action favorable to Allies was taken that effective aid from United States would soon be forthcoming. He added in evident agitation that he is “getting near the end of his rope” and that his position may soon become untenable unless American help is extended.
