You will see from this correspondence that Sheikh
Chassib was warned to abandon his intrigues in rlmzistan
' end that he promised to hrea'c off i.-nmedlately all relations
with the Ar b leaders in huzistif.n and taice care in utur*
to consult the British authorities before taking 'ny action.
In spite of this it is clear from paragraph 2 o the enclos
ure to your letter that Shaitch Chesaib is still intriguing
and that he actuelly proposed to make a persons,! ap -eal to
Ibn Saud to assist him to obtain his father 's position as
ruler of Khuzistan. In the circuias^ences nuoh as 1 sympathise
with him I find it iapossible to ask His Majesty 's inister
at Tehran to intervene with the Persian Governm nt on his
behalf. Indeed it seems probable that if rVaikh Chassib
were persaittod to return to -hu ^is^^n awd res uflP possession
of his father's property he would seize the opporl mity to
do pverything In his power to oust the Persian authorities.
As, however, Shaikh Chaasib has appealed to the Government
of India I am forwarding a copy of your note to that Govern
ment in case they may take a different view of the matter.
