Telegram from Rahn to the Foreign Ministry, explaining why he estimates a visit of the Greatmufti to Tunis as currently ineffective, by going into detail about the motives and background of the Bey, as a really compromise oriented party. He also proposes the possibility of an Arab uprising instigated through the Desturian Habib Bourgiba, which wouldn´t be favored by the presence of the Greatmufti.
