Pera, June 9, 1915
Answer to Telegram No. 1106
Dr. Lepsius would be too late with regard to the Porte's measures, which are already being executed and which appeared to be justified on the basis of different facts, which have been determined beyond doubt, and his endeavours would be ineffective. Furthermore, I consider his journey to be inopportune, particularly as Dr. Liparit's activities have not been cleared up (Report No. 329
) and because it could disturb the Porte's sensitivity, which, as I have sounded out in confidence, does not want this journey to take place, either.
Furthermore, I am doing my best to alleviate those measures of the Porte, which are too rigorous.
