Referring to Department’s June 11th, 6 p.m.6 Vice Consul Town-send has been ordered proceed Aden from Saloniki to take charge office temporarily. Upon his arrival you may proceed Abyssinia for visit. You should not proceed with the Anglo-American Oil party or do anything which would give them any appearance of being an official organization or having official support other than that which would be naturally extended to any American doing business in foreign country. However you will, of course, render them every assistance practicable.
