be unlikely to consent to the removal of uiei an el Airuna on
any terms not acceptable to the latter.

Muscat and if he will not novo nothing can he done. ..hen I
addressed my telegram No.139 of the k,6tn July last to ir

to see the man leave .uscat as soon as possible as stated in the

matter and you should lose nc time in explaining to the
Italian Government that <lis Majesty's Government find that they
Sere under a misapprehension as to the actual wishes of the

: hand him over to the Italian authorities. If the Italian
