I received your esteemed letter Ho.1(59, dated 20th Shawwal
1.541 corresponding to 12th June 192:5, and understood what you
mentioned about the Kerosene Oil.
Firstly, my dearv friend, you stated that I should inform
iiajor Holmes aoout that concession. I do not consider it proper
on ray part to cancel an agreement which I made
■/ithout any reason on the part of Major Holmes. As it has been
stipulated in the agreement that it should be approved by the
High British Government, undoubtedly the u-overnment is able
to prevent Major Holmes if she wishes to do so.
Secondly, you have remarked about the promise given by my
rather to Major Trevor in his letter dated IHth Jamadi II, 13:52.
y/o relied upon the condition laid down in the agreement that it
would never be executed except by the approval of the High
British government. In my opinion this is sufficient about our
aforesaid letter. If any^thins had happened it
