Agent, Bahrain. ' agr ' Raler of ^arjah, to,the Political
After compliments,
I have received your letter Ho. C/583-10/28 of I5th July
1^ .0 ana noted year remarks in connection with the information
recei\ ed Lv you from various sources that propaganda is being
carried out in oar town against the High Bpitish Government,
that certain remarks were written on walls, that certain persong
are trying to make the people of Sharjah believe that Germany
will, may ^od forbid it, be victorious over Britain and that
most of the responsibility lies with my servant Abdulla bin
Faris. Therefore 1 beg to infom you that 1 and all ray people
are the loyal friends of His Majesty's Government* As regards
the writings onjwalls, this was done once or twice by an eneray
of ours and yours and it has greived us. We trie d to find him
out but I regret to say that we were unable to do so. I was
surprised by the remains against Abdullah bin J^'aris because he
was and still is most loyal to His Majesty's Government and is
the enemy of their enemies. -Che accusations directed against
him have no basis of truth in them at all, and whoever has
reported the ^i^tter to youjhas reversed the facts. I forward
herewith copy of a document signed by the notables and merchants
of our town consisting of our subjects, your subjects and
Iranian subjects testifying to the f&ctjhe is a supporter and
most energetic caller for the support of His Majesty's Govt,
and is an enemy of their enemies both secretly and openly. As
regards listening to the Berlin broadcast, we do not listen to
it because it is the promulgator of falsehood. Under all
circumstances in this war v/e are the enemies of Germany and
Italy and their followers, we have done nothing that vail effect
those strong bonds of friendship. I request you to demand from
whoever has conveyed these lies to you to prove the same
because, indeed, I am afraid that he might do more to bring me
into misunderstandings with you. I wish he had informed you
truthfully of what he heard and seen of me and of others. I beg
