2. Your letter refers to my endorsement No. C/277,
dated the 12th June, 1946, and is in accordance with the
instructions contained in paragraph 2 of my memorandum No/C/167,
dated the 27th May, 1946. These instructions, however, have been
amplified by those contained in my express letter No. C/711^^r^"2-
dated the 21st August, 1946, and in view of what is contained in
India uffice express letter No. Ext.4952/46, dated the 2nd August,
1946, the question of the ownership of Deebal (or Jibal or Jabal)
and Jaradeh cannot be treated as a separate issue, but we must
endeavour to work out a complete marine dividing line between
Bahrain and Qatar. I am grateful for all the trouble that you
have ^aken, but am afraid that I must ask you to re-examine the
whole question, bearing in mind the papers that have been received
regarding the "Continental Shelf", vide correspondence ending with
this Residency A diplomatic office of the British Government established in the provinces and regions considered part of, or under the influence of, British India. printed letter No. 996 - S, dated the 17th November,

dated the 2nd August, 1946, His Majesty's Government have remarked
that the agreement of the interested parties to such a line is

agreement, and I am of opinion that we should first make up our
own mirds where such a line ought to run, and then, if necessary,
give the parties an opportunity of stating any objections they may
have to our proposals. ^ ^
3. I forward herewith a copy of the map referred to in
paragraph 10 of the draft memorandum which accompanied the printed
letter quoted in the last paragraph. You will see that in this
map both Deebal and Jaradeh fall to Qatar. Hawar is included in
the Bahrain area as its ownership is considered res .iudicate .
4. I would call your particular attention to the last
two sentences of paragraph 4 of India Office The department of the British Government to which the Government of India reported between 1858 and 1947. The successor to the Court of Directors. express letter No,
4962/46, dated the 2nd August, 1946. Your proposals regarding
Deebal and Jaradeh run counter to His Majesty's Government's
suggestions and if I am to support them I shall require very
strong grounds for recommending a course contrary to that which
His Majesty's Government considers should be fallowed.
5. I have today been asked by His Majesty's Government
to expedite my recommendations and in replying have indicated that
I hop** to forward them in January. I should be grateful, therefore,
if you would kindly endeavour to let me have your recommendations
by the end of the year.
6. I have no other copy of the map sent herewith. I
should be grateful therefore if you would copy the suggested
boundaries which concern you on to the chart already in your
fiossession and return it as soon as possible.
