FOREIGN RELATIONS, 19 3 7, VOLUME II
come about largely as a result of passage of time. We believe there-
fore that while it is proper to endeavor to settle such subsidiary prob-
lems as non-delivery of second class mail in the purely routine manner
which you have adopted, it would be best to proceed most cautiously in
discussing larger issues, such as extradition.
   So far as a trade agreement is concerned we consider that the
initiative should, for the present at least, be left entirely to the
Iranians.

  44. Some 15 high ranking Persian Government officials attended the
Legation's Fourth of July reception. Among them Minister for For-
eign Affairs who stayed over an hour, several other Cabinet Officers
and the President of the Parliament. They explained that others had
been unavoidably detained by signing of treaty with Iraq"1 same
afternoon and by preparations for official dinner same evening. I
gained the impression that the Government had definitely decided to
resume normal friendly relations with this Legation.
