Demi-official letter from the India Office The department of the British Government to which the Government of India reported between 1858 and 1947. The successor to the Court of Directors. , to the Foreign Office,
No. P. Z.-7401/34, dated THE 5th December 1934.
I enclose copy of a interesting letter from Fowle [Enclo 1 to Serial
No. (94)], on the question of the reactions in the Gulf to the outcome of
the war between Ibn Saud and the Imam. His conversation with the Sheikh
of Koweit appears to have confirmed the impression on this subject which
he had himself independently formed and which he mentioned to us during
the course of the summer. The point is, of course, of importance, since,
as Fowle says, “Ibn Saud’s authority over his subjects, especially over the
tribal elements^ depends a good deal on prestige”.
2. Ryan has, of course, by now left, and he will no doubt see the copy
of Fowle’s letter, which was sent direct to Calvert, on his return to Jedda.

{Received on 23rd December 1934, with Political Secretary's letter No. 49,
y dated 6th December 1934.)
Letter from the Resident, Aden, to the Colonial Office, No. 91, dated
the 4th April 1934.
I have the honour to refer to your despatch No. 1, dated 4th January
1933 in which you authorised the pavment to His Highness the Sultan of
Shehr and Mukalla of the arrears of his stipend for a period of three years
onlv from 1st April 1930 to 31st March 1933. The Sultan has been informed
of your decision, but he has not yet drawn the amount which you have
sanctioned.
2 In your despatch under reference you anticipated that difficulty
miuht be experienced in resisting payment of the whole of the arrears which
have accruea in the event of the Sultan invoking his Treaty obligations.
This difficulty has now arisen, as the Sultan has addressed a letter to me
on the 27th February in which he asks for reconsideration of this qrestion
on the eround that he is entitled to the full arrears under the terms of his
Treatv of 1882 with the British Government, in which there is no stipula
tion that he is bound to draw his stipend annually, or that he will be deprived
