Please refer to your deni-official letter Ro*7650 T»
dated 6 th Doconhor 1023•
As I rather expected, the Shaikh of Kuwait finds 2
lakhs for the "Hoarchus" nore than he cares to give, and
as you have nothing snailer for sale Just now, I an afraid
there is nothing more to he done; unless of course you
fail to get a hid for 2 lakhs and are prepared to take an
offer* Very unfortunately the Shaikh’s Agent in Bombay
let him in for buying a tra?fler or minesweeper or something
of the sort called the ,, Killindini w for Ra*04,000/-
V/hen the Shaikh saw the craft he innediatoly sent her
back to Bombay for sale, but so far he has been unable
to sell her* Possibly if he could get rid if this
incubus for a reasonable sun he might feel able to afford
the H ?^oarchuo ,, ♦ I wonder if any of your Dockyard officials
know of any likely purchaser for the "Klllindlnl"* Of
course I realize this is none of their business, but I
mention it in case there is some difficulty in dlsrosing
of the "Nearchus”, in which case the sale of "Killindinl*'
might help to get her off your hands*
