Translation of a letter dated 21st November 1922
from Sulaiman al Baruni al Nafusi (inhabitant of Nafusah in
Tunis, Africa), Lausanne, to His Highness the Sultan of
After Compliments, Perhaps you may have heard
what changes happened in our parts. I left Constantinople
for Lausanne, the place where the general peace conference
began the other day. It is hoped that it produces results
which may rid the world of disturbances and destructions.
As it is impossible for me to return to Tripoli at
this time owing to not getting help from Italy I intend to
travel in tlie East and specially your country (may it flour"
h.sh) which I have always been longing to see, since a long
time, to so? pay my respects to Your Majesty. It may releive
me of my troubles and terrors of the war which I see in my
heart. Possibly the English Embassy might object to grant a
passport to me therefore it is requested that if I send you
a telegram about it you may ask the British Consul at your
place to inform the Foreign Office in order to facilitate it,
I pray God to give you long life and help you in your rule.
P. S. This letter was delayed with me till I reached
from Lausanne to Naples. I again requested the Italian Govern
ment to allow me to go to Tripoli but they refused in these
days. Now I will go either to Angora or Constantiiiople. u.E.
