Dear Gibson,
In a letter to Baggallay dated 2nd January
(copy enclosed) the Iraqi Charge d*Affaires asked us to
supply him with copies of all treaties concluded
between Great Britain and the Princes of the Persian
Gulf which are not included in Aitchison’s Treaties.
We quite realise that the Iraqi Government
have no particular status for making this request,
but we ourselves have addressed similar enquiries to
foreign governments about treaties they have concluded.
We have therefore prepared the annexed list of
treaties and will be grateful for your observations
as to whether the text of all of them should be
communicated to Sayid Abdul Rahman Felahi.
If, as we assume, the majority of the
"reG o. POu it agreements in the list (or of those under (2), (3) and
> o APR 940 (4) ) are not confidential, and have not been published
INDIA OFFICE The department of the British Government to which the Government of India reported between 1858 and 1947. The successor to the Court of Directors. ^ 3imply t) ecaU8e there has been no particular occasion
