Here is where it is mentioned: the sender (A. E. B. Parsons) signs with his name and position initials:

"A Copy of under-mentioned papers is forwarded to the Dept. of Education Health & Lands for information.
By order, etc.,
Signed: A. E. B. Parsons
D. S. F."

Do you have any suggestion what "DSF" or "D.S.F." stands for. It is a position held by the British officer Arthur Edward Broadbent Parsons

Thank you.

Is there any practical difference between the two?



there is a slight difference in emphasis between both sentences; in the second sentence the speaker is not as much sure as in the first one.

the content talks about sending geological surveyors to the Persian Gulf.

"The safety of the party is important. after issue of the draft, file should go back to the department of E. H. & L to see the action taken.

Do you have idea what E. H. & L stand for?

thanks in advance.

subject: Question of the survey of Muscat hinterland and Anglo-Persian Oil Company’s Mission to Qatar & Trucial Coast.

Please see Deputy Secretary and ask if Government will agree and then please take all necessary action and send wires on my behalf.
D.S.C. will look into possibilities and wire you whether he could find the Surveyors. He is in any case most reluctant to do so.

Do have idea what D.S.C. stand for here?

thanks in advance

Thank you all. I was confused about sovereign but found it to mean a gold coin; and on him to mean like he has a debt due to or on him.

It is said that the Governor General had one or two of his confidential agents in attendance on Dr. Mann who accompanied him wherever he went. Dr. Mann had many long conversations with His Highness. He called on all the notables in Shiraz and informed everyone that he was on an economic mission from the British Government. He also posed as being a strong personal friend of King Feisal of Iraq. While in Kazerun. Dr. Mann spread reports that he had 500 English sovereigns on him. On his leaving Shiraz, the Governor General presented him with a handsome carpet and n silver cigarette case
