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


360. My 355, April 6. Minister of Finance Saleh resigned yesterday. While ostensible reason was poor health actual reason was inability to get along with Millspaugh. …

… I regret Saleh’s resignation since I had high hopes of the assistance he could render to Millspaugh but I feel that under the circumstances it is the only solution. Immediately the friction between Saleh and Millspaugh came to our attention I sought appointment with Saleh with idea of conciliation but he resigned before I could get in touch with him.
