Sir,
In continuation of my telegram lio. 803 of July 18th
1914, regarding tne report that Bin Sand was negotiating
with other Arab Sheikhs to bring them under the Turkisn
flag, I nave the honour to report, for the information
of the Government of India, that further enquiries appear
to corroborate the truth of the suggestion I had pat
forward that the iEHg&Kfcx report was a figment of the
Turkish authorities. In this connection I would draw
attention to Captain Shakespear’s letter to Sir a. nirtzel
dated June 26th in which he refers to a loose kind of
confederation between Bin 5aud and various other chiefs,
directed against the Turks. It is possible that the
existence of the negotiations in connection therewith;
have either given colour to the report in question or
have been deliberately misrepresented by the Turkish
envoys in order to foster a notion of the complete
success of their mission.
I have, etc.,
