Ruler of Koweit, has accepted this rent especially from the precious Imperial

than this rent. Sheikh Mobarak-us-Subah would not allow them to possess
authority in his dominions, and as for the precious Imperial English Government
he is grateful to them and their generosity is upon him, and that he will not consent
that a Power other than them shall interfere, though they gave him more than
this rent, and he hopes for the permanence of the care of the precious Imperial
English Government and its kindness on him and on his heirs after him, and the
precious Imperial English Government has honoured me with the special
permission that I may assure Sheikh Mobarak-us-Subah, Ruler of Koweit, on
behalf of the precious Imperial English Government, that the aforesaid English
Government does not wish to interfere in the affairs of Koweit, except for the
profit of the people of Koweit and the increase of trade, and knowledge and
friendship between the English Government and the people of Koweit, and, as
regards Sheikh Mobarak-us-Subah and his heirs after him, the desire of the precious
Imperial English Government is that the friendship and agreement between the
English Government and the Sheikh of Koweit may be perpetual.
And, finally. Sheikh Mobarak-us-Subah, at the express wish of the precious
Imperial English Government, promises that this Agreement shall be kept
