The state of Damascus and Greater Lebanon

“The most favorable climate, for commercial operations and the resumption of the economic life, prevails throughout the state of Damascus and Greater Lebanon.
On October 1, the Homs-Tripoli railway, which is of considerable economic importance, was inaugurated. It settles indirect relations to the coastal zone, the interior Greater-Lebanon, and the State of Damascus [...]
Economic interests will hopefully lead to political and religious rivalries and will definitively link Tripoli to the cause of Greater Lebanon.”

Signed: Head of the Eastern Section of the 3rd Bureau. VINCENT
