7th RaM II 1341
Translation of a letter dated , 7~~~
^rd December 1922.
from Sulaiman al Baruni al ITafusi (inhabitant of Rafusah in
Tunis, Africa), Lausanne, to His Highness the Sultan of
Muscat and Oman, Muscat.
After Compliments, I have sent the other day a
letter to Your Majesty regarding my journey to the Daot. How
it is necessary for me that I would state to Your Majesty
that the revolution (changes) in Turkey was the result of
the late sultan’s taking protection ifith the English and it
brought an end of the Parliament of which I was a member.
Por this reason I intended to remain away from Constantinople
till matters were put right. But Italy does not permit me to
Tripoli and the Xrench do not allow me to go to Tunis or any
other place of their possessions, and the English are more
severe than these both, and so I shall return to Angora after
two days. As there is an old feud between me and Ahmad al
Sanussi at Angora and probably I cannot get ease there with
them. How there is no place of shelter for me after them
except your wide place till peace is concluded and I may be
allowed to return to Tripoli. Consequently I pray from Your
Majesty’s mercy only this one thing. You may ask about ray
coming to you by telegram which may be sent to the Prench
Ambassador or you may ask the Consul at your place to write
to his ambassador about your good wishes and that ambassador
rnay inform me about it. I am waiting for it after the arrival
of this my letterto your goodself. The telegram may remain
with me for requirement, and if I am compelled to travel I
will use it. But if I get ease I will keep it as a historical
valuable remembrance.
I asked Your Majesty about this so that the people
may know that I have got some other them them with whom I
may ask for help if it is required. I have written this in hni
haste
