Try Solid Gold

The Morning News (Letter) — April 18, 1951

The Mossadegh Project | September 13, 2018                 

A letter to the editor of The Morning News of Wilmington, Delaware from a reader in southern California.

April 18, 1951


To the Editor of the Morning News:

If Iran had been paid for her oil in gold sovereigns, as Saudi Arabia is paid in U.S. twenty dollar gold pieces, the nationalization of the oil fields might have been avoided. Money talks in the Near East, but it has to be hard money.

La Jolla, Calif., April 11.
