After Compliments.
I write to inform you that when jthe geologists arrived
at Sharjah and intended to go out to the desert; and intended
ijimni i -i i i m i i n . , . T r j -- i j i 1
to make Dhaid as their station, Shaikh IQialid bin Ahmad and his
brother heard about it and came to me and informed me that they
were not willing to allow that unless if it was conducted by them
I, therefore, wrote a letter to Shaikh Sultan and informed him
that before the geologists intended to go to Dhaid, he should
consult his cousins and at the same time let them (geologists)
at—■' M»i i ii>— w 11 i- ||<|l|ll " t(r *- q
know that Dhaid and its suburbs belonged to them (Sultan's
cousins). Sultan, however, declined to reply to ray letter and
I have not yet heard anything from him on the subject. Therefore
1 want to inform you that Dhaid belonged to the said persons
and also Falaj Kidar, and are in possession of letters and
documents in support of their claim. As the Shaikhs, the sons
of Ahmad, are now with me and under my protection; and also have
the same rights and responsibilities as I have, I wrote this
in order to inform you. The owners have the right over their
respective territories which the others have no right to
transgress over them.
