Ply dear George,
Piany thanks for your letter of 28th Octoher,
No. E.6014/1329/34, about the provisional draft of the
general Treaty instructions to be given to Hoare. The
Foreign Office have since seen the Government of India’s
telegram of 17th November, No.2727, and we observe that
the further revise of the instructions to the Minister
received by us unaer Foreign Office letter of 30th
November, No. E.7322/1329/34, proceeds on the assumption
that the Secretary of state will share the Government of
India’s views on all the points in issue. This is,
broadly speaking, correct, but there are various
oiistanding points with which I deal below.
I now write to say that subject to the
observations that follow and to any comments which the
Admiralty may have to make on the points of special
interest to them, such as Henjam, Basidu, visits of
ships, etc., we concur in the draft Instructions to
Hoare enclosed in Foreign Office letter of 30th November
and in the provisional draft of the Treaty attached
thereto. For convenience I aeal separately in this
letter with the draft instructions and with the draft
G.W, Rendel, Esq., C.M.G.,
