Ivly dear Fowle , V'.r
v. i tn reference to your telegram of 25th January,
No,82 and connected correspondence, I write to send you
inforiually an advance cop^y of a note which has "been prepared
on the question of the boundary of Qatar and the problems
which arise out of it. {We still of course await the
Government of India's recommendations on the actual
boundary question). Copies are being sent to the Foreign
Office, and are being submitted here, for consideration: but
at the moment it is purely provisional and has no approval
of higher authority behind it. Since it was written, we
have heard from the Anglo Persian Oil Company that according
to one member (Haji a .i 1 .Williamson) of the Geological party
which visited ^latar in jJ'eoruary and March 1930 s the Southern
ooundary line shown on their map was indicated by the Shaikh
and it looks therefore as though we can with reasonable
coniidence assume that this is his own view at the present
time of his southern boundary. This should go a long way to
clear the air, though it will leave us with the difficult
problems of the attitude to be adopted in respect of the area
between the Sheikh's line and the blue line of the 1913
Convention. In this connection we should be grateful for
any information you can give us by air mail as to
