seconded a number of consular officers for service
with the military authorities, they hold military
rank and so on, and we have no reason to suppose that
the position either of the individual officers, or of
the service as a v/hole is likely to be compromised

seems necessary now to pay the same attention to the
exaggerated susceptibilities of the Persian Government,

accompanied the occupying forces into Persia.
Before taking a definite decision we should
