My dear Laithwaite,
as arranged in our telephone conversations, I write
in regard to the air facilities which are essential at atar
if it is to be possible for the BJUF. to carry out their
part in implementing a guarantee of protection to the Sheikh.
You will remember that we agreed in the Middle East
Official Gornmittee that it was not necessary to complicate the ■
draft telegram itself which we prepared for Cabinet approval ^
with the details of these facilities and that we considered it
sufficient for our purposes in this telegram merely to refer to
:
them briefly and generally and deal with the details separately. I
After considering again the papers already sent to
the Resident, Persian Gulf Historically used by the British to refer to the sea area between the Arabian Peninsula and Iran. Often referred to as The Gulf or the Arabian Gulf. , demi-officially, including our demi-
v' v official letter of the 29th January, 3,32797, I feel that our
original view that Fowle already had full details is not, in
fact, quite substantiated, especially in regard to the vitally
important point of intelligence and I feel that in order to
fulfil our intention to give him all necessary details of
facilities required, it is necessary to send him a further
telegram amplifying the brief reference in paragraph 3 of the
draft wire, detailing the facilities required, and making quite
clear that the grant of these facilities by the Sheikh is an
essential condition of our giving an undertaKing oi protection#
These points are, of course, quite well understood over here by
us who have taken part in the deliberations, but I am not sure
that, as the papers sent to Fowle stand, our intentions would
