after all catch the last mail steamer before she left and will reach you with this
letter), I have the honour to forward herewith a copy of my reply to Bin Sa’ud’s
lettter.
Bin Sa’ud sent a confidential messenger with this letter who had an interview
with me. He said that Bin Sa’ud would like to have another meeting with me,
and asked if I could arrange it. I replied that I should like very much to see Bin
Sa ud again, but I did not think it would be advisable for me to go and meet him
now, without sanction from superior authority, as possibly, in view of the pour
parlers going on in London, such action might be open to objection.
. In an y case 1 c o u W not add anything to what I had said at the former inter
view and in my letter No. 514 as I knew nothing further.
Ihe messenger said that Bin Sa’ud had received a letter from Shaikh Mubarak
suggesting a meeting with Binbashi Saiyid ’Omar Beg at Kuwait. I said that
as tar as I was aware, there did not appear to be any immediate neces
sity to arrive at a settlement, and recommended delay. The messenger however
seemed to think that Bin Sa’ud would feel called upon to go if he received'
another letter. My impression is that Bin Sa’ud intends to go and have a meeting
m any case, and is naturally very anxious to know first whether the British Govern
ment has been able to do anything for him.
