Please refer to telegram 45 S. from Poreign Department.
If Wa^smuss is still there and has any authority, he will not agree to
exchange any one but Listemann for O’Connor; he might possibly agree to
exchange one of others, say Perguson, for Eisenhut if Khans would let him.^
If however, Wassmuss has disappeared (as rumour says), I think it is just
as likely Khans would exchange O’Connor for Khalu (Zair ?) Hossem as for
Eisenhut, in fact probably more likely as they care nothing for latter.
There is possibility of our securing release, I think, if instead of remaining
quiescent we show some sign of activity here.
