Copy of letter from the Governor’s Office, Aden, to Secretary of
State for the Colonies, London, No. Confidential (2), dated the
16th June 1937.
I have the honour to acknowledge receipt of your confidential despatch
of the 24th May 1937 regarding the succession to the Sultan Sate of Mukalla,
and to state that I shall discuss the matter with His Highness Sultan Salih'
on his return to Aden, in the manner that you indicate. I do not yet know
the date of his arrival, but I understand that it will be during the month of
July.
2 . In the meantime Sultan Muhammad bin ’ Umar, son of the late
Sultan ’ Umar and claimant under the Will of Sultan Awadh to the Sultanate
of Mukalla, has arrived and is remaining here temporarily to press his case.
He has not yet stated it fully but I have no doubt that he will base it not
only on the Will of Sultan Awadh but also on the Agreement made between
his father, the late Sultan L mar, and the present Sultan at Hyderabad in
India on 24th June 1922, to which he has already referred in a recent letter
to me. Copies of this agreement and of the Will of Sultan Awadh were sent
to your predecessor as accompaniments to Major-General Scott’s despatch
No. 67, dated the 16th May 1923. For convenience I propose to send you
fresh copies of both the documents.
3. It will be seen that the Agreement of 1922, to which the present Sultan
appended his signature, is of a very categorical nature, and it will be interest
ing to see how His Highness proposes to justify his intention to dishonour
it. It will be observed that although General Scott recommended on page 4
of his despatch of l(3th May 1923 that the Agreement should be recognised
