After conversation with Wilson I verture to
suggest telegram from you to the Colonial Office regarding
Holmes' activities might strengthen the hands of tne
A.P.O.C. in their present negotiations in London, awa'ken
the Colonial Office to realization of danger, and make
your own position clearer. Perhaps the following would do J
"Frank Holmes representing Eastern and General Syndicate
who has recently concluded oil lease with Bin Saud, is now
understood to be negotiating for concession from Sheikhs
of Bahrain and Kuwait, as to which he has not referred to
us in any way. In view my instructions to assist the
A,P,0»C # to negotiate agreements with those Sheikhs, I
would "be glad* to/what attitude H•G-o.vt. wish me to adopt
with regard to Holmes 5 activities, which seriously threaten
A.P.O.C. interests in these regions, and possibly aleo
those of H .M.Govt., if as I understand his agreement with
Bin Saud contains a clause specifically forbidding
transference of concession to the A.P.O .C., which is the
only oil concern other than American or Dutch groups who
could afford to develope these regions."
