Telegram from Rahn to the Foreign Ministry in Berlin, detailing the unrest of the Italian Administration about Arab uprisings, which are exemplified by a nationalistic speech of an Iraqi in Tunis, and their demand to the Germans to keep those events at bay, although agreeing with pardoning Desturians for propaganda-purposes. He also talks about Italian displeasure with administrative restrictions, which Rahn justifies as reactions to unreasonable behavior of the military, which threatens relations with French and Arabs. Finally mentions wish of Italian General Consul to have interests at the french residency represented by Germany.
