Sir,
With reference to my despatch No* 9 of the 6th of
September, I have the honour to transmit to you the accompanying
^g^opy of a letter received from the Anglo-Persian Oil Company
m regard to the terns of the oil concessions for which they
have applied in Kuwait and Bahrein.
2. I presume that the Company's sanction for the acceptance
of a revised draft modified in accordance with my suggestions
has already been notified to you through their local
representative, and that, as I have informed the Company,
it is still premature to expect any substantial progress in
trie necessary negotiations^ I should be glad, however, if
you would keep me in touch with the progress made at each
stage of the discussions with the Sheikhs.
I have the honour to'he,
Sir,
Your most obedient,
humble servant.
