in the Bahrain Government Land Department, and they bear my seal which shows
that I have approved of the purchase of aforesaid lands by the British Government.

us by money and land.

foreshore adjacent to the aforesaid lands and may construct a pier and any other
work, provided that if any of the fish traps which are owned by our subjects are
affected the British Government will pay compensation to the owners.' Also I
give my assurance that no permission will be given to any one to construct any
building on the shore or the land adjacent to the aforesaid land which might spoil

us and the British Government.

this opportunity of being of help to His Majesty King George of England who is
our friend and whose ancestors have been the friends of my ancestors since the

prosperity and I hope that in the future I may have the opportunity of again
presenting myself before His Majesty in England.
