APPENDICES TO CHAPTER 6, MUSCAT
Undertaking given to His Majesty's Government by Saiyid Sa 'id on his Accession
Letter, dated February 10 J 932, from the Sultan of Muscat and Oman to
the Political Resident A senior ranking political representative (equivalent to a Consul General) from the diplomatic corps of the Government of India or one of its subordinate provincial governments, in charge of a Political Residency.
I acknowledge with pleasure the receipt of your honoured letter dated
9th January 1932 in which you informed me that my father has abdicated from
the throne of his State and has appointed me as his successor. You state that you
have informed His Majesty's Government of this and that the High Government
have been pleased to recognise me as Sultan of Muscat and Oman. I would
request you to convey my thanks to the High Government. I am writing to inform
you that I have in conformity with the orders issued by my father ascended the
throne of the Sultanate to-day and have intimated to the members of my family
the decision of my father to abdicate from the throne and that he has nominated
me to succeed him. They have approved of that and have accepted me as Ruler
of the State. I would request you to inform the High Government that it is not
hidden from me that I shall endure in my rule by the continuance of their help
and assistance to me and my Government in the same manner as my ancestors
were helped by them. And it is hoped that you will assure the aforesaid
Government that I have accepted all the obligations to the High Government
descending to me from my father and that I am determined to follow his policy
in all my relations with Government and that I rely on the help of the
Government and declare that in accordance with the wishes of my father I will
be guided by its views in important matter, as I am assured that the Government
will not be pleased except in what profits my State and desires the maintenance
of the independence of our Government and Sultanate. And since nowadays
there are no other representatives of those powers in Muscat with whom we are
in treaty relations we would request His Majesty's Government to inform the
Governments of the United States, France and Holland of our accession.
In conclusion I thank Your Honour for your sincere wishes and hope that
our friendship and union may continue.
