He of course Is a renegade*,’ and one of tthe worst anti
British propagandists In the Oulf I consider. He more
than anyone else stands for and advises the Sheikh to
kick against our control and strike out a line for
himself.
10. I saw ^ox of the A.P.O.G. last night, he tells m©
he has received a wire from Abadan to suspend surface
boring operations. I see Holmes* and his friend Mellons
hand in this.
11. X have written a very gossipy letter I fear, but I
like you to know things I cannot put down in official
letters, it helps you to get local atmosphere I think.
12. I win try and come over early in May but will write
separately about this.
