Your telegram 135.
Yesterday I received letter from O’Connor, dated 29th April, saying
that the Khans had agreed to release of prisoners against Tangistani prisoners
without further conditions. But in forwarding this letter Zair Khidar wrote a
letter protesting his desire for friendship, &c., and in postscript repeated all the
conditions mentioned in my telegram 154—923. Shall I reply that, if Zair
Khidar sends over O’Connor and the other British prisoners, we will guarantee
to release Khalu Hussain and an equal number of Tangistani prisoners as soon
as they can be got back from Basrah or India, and add that if he does not it
will be worse for him and Shaikh Hussain ?
Regret to report that O’Connor informed me that Mr. Pettigrew, Indo-
European Telegraph Department, died of heart disease on 27th ultimo.

Your telegram 147—1017.
I approve negotiations on lines suggested.
I am requesting Kawam and Soulet to take high tone with these Khans.
It is pretty clear they are intimidating as in their negotiations with Kawam
and Soulet they only ask for pardon in return for release of prisoners and do
not put forward extravagant demands, they address to O’Connor.
