The Minister in Persia (Caldwelt) to the Acting Secretary of State
TEHERAN, February 26, 1920-5 p.m.
[Received March 4-3:16 a.m.]
7. A British military mission headed by Major General Dickson
has been working in conjunction with the Persian Government in
Teheran for more than a month. This commission expects to stay
here for at least two or three years.
A British financial and customs revision commission headed by
Sir Hubert Llewellyn Smith, is now working here in conjunction
with the Persian Ministry of Finance and this commission expects to
finish the preliminary work and depart in less than a month. The
British Minister has requested me to make any suggestion that I
wish in this connection but this was entirely a diplomatic move as
the deliberations and decisions of the commission are not being made
known to anyone. Has the Department any instructions.
