To The Secretary to the Government of India in the Foreign and Political Depart*
ment, Simla (repeated Baluchistan).
Mv telegram of the 22nd April, No. 227 C. On seeing my telegram,
April 20th evening, James, it appears, called Wikeley to the telephone and
obtained permission to proceed next morning to Sipeh. He found no Baluchis
there. Proposal to disarm levies has evidently been abandoned by Wikeley
who sent me following on April 21st Begins. 378 X. Presence of levies at
Dehaneh Baghi is not considered necessary for military purposes as regular
troops at Dehaneh have been considerably increased. These levies might, I
recommend, be placed elsewhere. On Labi-Baring-Bandan line, for instance,
thev will be better employed. Ends. Claridge, who is under orders to take
command at Dehaneh, is of the same opinion as Wikeley evidently. Wikeley
has now been asked by me how in view of the possibility of the Germans in
disguise approaching from east or west all tracks and wells within Dehaneh
area can be watched without levies.
I got a private telegram from Heron yesterday saying that correctness
of mv views was accepted by him.
Of events of April 13th, he says he has vivid recollection.
