are concerned, it is their bond fide intention to do their best to secure that the
Oil Company does not suffer harm in their territory ; hut some of ^ the junior
Khans hold pro-German views and have been aiming at infringment of
irresponsibility and the fact that these two Khans felt their inability to ansvt er ^
for any of the senior Khans or for the tribe warns us of the suspicion that the
German Agents have succeeded in squaring some of them. 1 incidentally
visited the oil fields and travelled down the pipe line and am submitting to the
Army Commander my views regarding their requirements.

Begins. I had long interview with Governor-General and Ponsette

Both emphatically disavowed any intention of supporting Wassmuss in
any way and promised to telegraph at once to Borasjun ordering gendarmerie
and Khans not to assist him. Ends.
Telegram R., dated (and received) the 9th May 1915.
From— Major A. P. Trevor, C.I.E., Officer on Special duty 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. ,
Bushire,
To—The Secretary to the Government of India in the Foreign and Political Depart
ment, Simla.
My telegram No. 198.* I hear Wassmuss has sent a telegram to his
0 Legation stating that English have erect-
« senai No. 136. e( j man y fortifications round Bushire and
are instigating the Khans of Dashtistan to fight and have sent a gun to Haider
Khan, the robber of his caravan.
As regards fortifications as mentioned my telegram No. 420,+ village of
Tengak was occupied after Haji Ali was
t Senai No. 85. expelled and post was established on
isthmus and two pickets south of Residency A diplomatic office of the British Government established in the provinces and regions considered part of, or under the influence of, British India. to prevent any attempt by
tribesmen to rescue Haji Ali or to raid Residency A diplomatic office of the British Government established in the provinces and regions considered part of, or under the influence of, British India. or telegraph station end
of island.
Statement re instigation of Khans to fight is totally false and is amusing
coming from such a quarter.
Recently quarrels at (?) bankara(?) had just been settled without
fighting before Wassmuss came on scene.
It remains to be (seen) what effect of his coming will be.
No gun has been sent to Haider Khan.
I have telegraphed above in case the Persian Government makes any
representations.
There is little doubt that Wassmuss’s object in coming to Borasjun is to
• try and get up a combination of Khans to attack Haider Khan.
Addressed to Tehran ; repeated Shiraz, Basrah, Foreign.
