After compliments.
I have duly received your esteemed letter, dated 2nd
Shaaban 1331 (=* 7th July 1913), and understood its contents.
I am highly obliged for your compliance with the views of
the British Government.
Your Honour drew attention (in the same communication)
to certain items contained in the Treaties and engagements
existing between the British Government and yourself. Your
friend has not got the text of them here in L 0 hammerah, ex
cept the translation of the agreement executed between your
self and Colonel Meade, Resident in the Persian Gulf Historically used by the British to refer to the sea area between the Arabian Peninsula and Iran. Often referred to as The Gulf or the Arabian Gulf. , on 23rd
January 1899. The purport of that instrument is that Your
Honour would not receive an agent from any foreign Government
without previous reference to and the concurrence of the
British Government. In the course of the present negotia
tion it was necessary for the British Government to acquiesce
in the appointment of an Agent of the Turkish Government at
Kuwait as the price of the recognition of the administrative
autonomy of your Government and in return for the other ad
vantages accruing to Your Excellency, as set forth in the
document in question.
Secondly, with reference to the use of the word Stic—
cessor" (Khalaf) instead of the word ,, sons ,, (aolad) / therein.
There was no motive behind this, ior you are aware thc^t as
stipulated in the Convention, the Turkish Government speci
fically refrains from concerning itself with this question,
and agrees not to interfere in connection therewith. Conse
quently, in my opinion, everything that is recorded in this
