The Colonial Office wrote to our London Principals
as follows in their letter of the 4th of March:-
TT An undertaJcing has now been secured from His Highness
tne Sultan of Mascat that he will not give a concession for
petroleum in his territory without consulting the Political
Agent and without securing the approval of the G-overnment of
India. In these circumstances I am to reouest that His (Jrace
may now be informed of the terms which your Company are
prepared to offer for the grant of an exclusive prospecting
license over the Sultan's territories".
Our^London Principals replied on the 17th of May that
they were willing to accept a concession on the same terms as
those approved by the Colonial Office for Zoweit and Bahrain,
and ashed the Colonial Office to be good enough to instruct
you by cable to endeavour to get the Sultan to sign such
concession at once.
On the following month the Sultan proceeded to Dhofar,
and we understand that he is not likely to return to Mascat
before the middle of Uovember.
We understand that the Political Agent A mid-ranking political representative (equivalent to a Consul) from the diplomatic corps of the Government of India or one of its subordinate provincial governments, in charge of a Political Agency. has since
received through you instructions from His Majesty's G-overnment
to give his assistance to the D'Arcy Exploration Company in
Detaining a concession from the Sultan of Mascat on the same
lines as at Howeit and Bahrain, and that the Sultan of Mascat
has been informed in this sense.
We now^beg to inform you that we are ready to open
nu^otiations with the oultan ox Mascat at any time convenient
^ to yourself. V/e should be gla.d to receive your
further recommendations on this subject in due course.
