The Minister in Iran (Dreyfus) to the Secretary of State
[Received 9:58 p.m.]
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.
