Dyer will be told I hope that Consul is competent to dispose of this case as
he originally promised to reward Hazara Levies for any particularly good
work Prom Colonel Dale I have received no recommendations and probably
knew through reports of Vice-Consul at Birjand good deal more of circum

I gave orders for surrender of all arms to Hisan-ud-Daula on his protest
that it was no offence for Persian subjects to hawk arms from one town to
another and on his promising to buy the best weapons himself. It was not a*
ease of gun-running to Afghanistan or smuggling.
