./ith reference to correspondence ending with
Sir Trenchard's demi-official letter h'o.517-S, dated the
29th October 1938, to Sir Aubrey Metcalfe on the subject
of Suleman al Baruni, I am desired to enclose herewith
a copy of Hay* s letter NO.D.4110-N/38 of 7th December 1933.
It does not seem to sir Trenchard that Baruni
is likely to indulge in any anti-British intrigue, and
if he tried to do so he is sure that the Sultan, with his
healthy suspicion of the Italians and their ways,, would
stop him immediately. However you might keep an
unobstrucive eye on Baruni and let us know in due course
what you can of his activities. Incidentally the Arab
press, as you will doubtless have noticed, have commented
favourably on Baruni’s appointment.
A copy of this letter is being sent to
Peel and Hay.
Major R.p. Yfatts, I.a
P olitical Agent,
* sent under P.L.No.740-S of 17/12/38
