Dear Gol. Prideaux,
I thank you for your B/o letter No.42-3 dated
February 19th #
I note that Daly considsrs that it was a mistake for
Mackie both to press Shaikh Hamad to visit the Oil Fields and to
discuss with him the draft Concession. I am glad to see that
you do not agree with Daly's view. Daly I understand expressed
no such views when Mackie was in Bahrein and certainly gave
Ma, ckie the idea that he regarded his action as the right one and
the results reached as satisfactory#
I do not share your apprehensions regarding the effect
on the Shaikh of a visit to the Oil Fields, It is our experience
that no Arah can conceive of the expense and amount of the work
involved in the development of an Oil Field. They regard an
oil well as a mere shallow hole not unlike their own water wells
which can be dug for a few pounds, and have no idea of the
enormous amount of machinery, pipe and other material required
