Sheikh Hamad wired to the Eastern and General
Syndicate in London requesting that the deepening of
Well Ko. 1 should not "be delayed, as he had great-
expectations of fresh water "being discorered at a greater
depth than that already reached.
A reply was receired to the effect that Major
Holmes was coming out in September and would explain
e-rerything. In the meanwhile the Engineers had commenced
moYing their plant to l/oharraq. Owing to the intense
heat in August howerer, they found it impossible to carry
on the work f and it was not until about 10 days ago that
operations in Moharraq were commenced*
I do not feel at all satisfied with the
arrangements of the Eastern and General Syndicate for
carrying out this work. The boring plant should hare
been properly supplied with spare parts and a repair
outfit in the first place, an# but for extreme aallous-
ness on the part of the London Office, the spare parts
ordered would hare arrired in Bahrein much earlier.
