BUShire ' November 14,1908.
WITH reference to this office diary of the 13th November last, I have the
honour to report that Sheikh Shahin-bin-Toq, Headman of the Al-bu-AiMin teihe m
Bahrein, has confidentially reported to this Agency An office of the British Government and, earlier, of the East India Company. that his tribe ^ Wakra hav
not nlaced much faith on the assurances given them by Sheikh Jasim-bm-Ihani
and his son Sheikh Abdurrahman, and that their decision to keep their place 18 to
the aS riven to them that they are too numerous and strong to be ejected from
Wakra bv Sheikh Jasim or his son, Abdurrahman, that they can successfully res
arms if any further attempt is made to molest them, and that they should not leave a
town which is entirely of their own making for the last several generations.
All the same, Sheikh Shahin says, the tribe do not feel themselves st J on S e “ 0 " g a |
and they are therefore approaching the Turkish Government, soliciting the favour ri
annointine a small military post at Wakra to save them and their town from
Session in future by the Maadih and their followers. With this object m view
the tribe have sent a deputy to Bussorah, Ahmeu-bm-Khatar-al-bu-Amam, a resident
of Bahrein, by the last up-mail steamer, who will interview the Vah there and exp am
to him the case of the tribe and their wish to secure a military post for Wakia.
