apparent that sovereignty has been claimed and exercised in the past by
the Sultans of 'Oman over parts of Ruus.al-Jibal, especially Khasab •
that the inhabitants, though in most places they exist in a state of
virtual independence, are generally disposed to admit a connection with
Masqat; and that the Shaikh of Sharjah, whose grandfather was sup.
posed in 1861 to entertain a rival claim to the district, does not now
dispute the title of the Sultan of 'Oman.
