conclusion of treaty with Sheikh till some time has elapsed. We think ^ that when
Sheikh is firmly established, and we have defined our relations with the Amir, and when
time has been given for affairs of the peninsula to settle down, we might take a suitable
opportunity to make a treaty on the general lines which Resident sketched in letter of
the 22nd June (enclosure in letter of the 24th July, from my Foreign Secretary). We
would assure Sheikh of protection by sea and of our good offices if he is attacked by
laud without provocation. In return he would be required to co-operate in suppressing
arms traffic, to receive a British Agent, and to undertake to refrain from having relations
with, or receiving representative of, or ceding any land to, any Power other than Great
Britain, and to refuse to grant without our consent any monopolies or concessions or
cable-land in o- rights. The agreement should generally resemble those made with Irucial
Chiefs, as regards maritime, trucial, or slave trade. We could secure later on the other
desiderata which the Resident mentions.
