Kabul, 12th Bov ember 1911.
I reported in my last two diaries the feelings
of the public here about the Italo-Turkieh war.
The are all angry with the British
(jorernment. Hie Majesty the Amir is also sorry over
its attitude with regard to the passage of Turkish troops
through igypt* He thinks that the said government Is
at the bottom of the conflict and that, if the passage
| is not allowed, he shall be convinced of it. Outwardly
he has assumed an attitude of equanimity, but inwardly
is much afflicted and watches the development of events
j very keenly. The sketch map of the seat of war, which
was submitted with my last diary, was designed to serve
the purpose of showing the progress of events and to
create sympathy with the Turks and enmity towards the
British government.
5d. Malik Talib Mehdi Khan,
British Agait at Kabul.
