From—His Britannic Majesty’s Consul-General and Agent of the Government of
India in Khorasan, Meshed,
To—The Secretary to the Government of India in the Foreign and Political Depart
ment, Delhi.
Yesterday news was brought to me that an Austrian fugitive had arrived
at a village 6 miles distant from Meshed and he was brought in by Captain
Thorburn whom I sent out with some sowars. He unfortunately proves to
be an unimportant person. His surrender was demanded by the Acting
Karguzar, but I replied to the effect that so long as the presence of British
and Russian troops was required in Persia for the maintenance of peace and
to prevent our enemies’ Agents from obtaining access into Afghanistan I
declined even by one man to reinforce our enemies. The man has been handed
over by me to the Russian Consul-General here.

From—His Britannic Majesty’s Consul General and Agent of the Government of
India in Khorasan, Robat,
To—The Secretary to the Government of India in the Foreign and Political Depart
ment, Delhi.
Please refer to my telegram No. 9-F., dated the 4th November.
In telegraphing to Minister of Foreign Affairs complaining of my action
and in view of the fact that a large number of Austrian and German prisoners
will be arriving from Sarakhs Daragaz Dushakh, etc., Karguzar asks for early
orders.
All those mentioned in his report, he states, should be arriving before
Muharram 10th (November 18th). Connivance of Persian Government is
thus shown clearly.

From—His Britannic Majesty’s Consul, Kerman,
To—The Secretary to the Government of India in the Foreign and Political Depart
ment, Delhi.
From Bam information has been received that a large force has been
collected by Jehand and that he is marching on Narmashir. He is acting in
concert with Germans and unless he is stopped will come on here.
Governor-General is unable to cope with both and as soon as position
becomes serious will certainly take flight.
