it oeern s aif f icuxt uo dsny tlia.t th.© new treaty does liavo some
effect on the commitments o f His Maje sty * s Government. If
the phrase in article 2 of the 1 917 treaty, hereby the Id r isi»s
i.i depen _en ce was assured in all of his domains, is regarded
as involving a guarantee on the part of His Majesty’s Government,
this guarantee must in practice be affected by the fact that
under the new treaty the Idrisi has consented to some limitation
of his in' eponfence. Again, the undertaking of His Majesty’s
Government to protect the Farsan Islands and the Idrisi’s
seaboard xrom all hostile action cannot be entirely unaffected
in practice by the obligation which Ibn Saud has now accepted
to do the seme thing. Finally, article 2 of the Ibn Saud-
Idnsi Agreement seems to prevent the Idrisi from entering into
any political negotiations with His Majesty’s Government without
Ion Scaua’s consent; and this circumstance may in practice have
sane effect on the position under the 1917 treaty.
1 4# The ( l ue st ±on has hitherto been one mainly of academic
interest, but it appears to Sir Austen Chamberlain that, unless
His Majesty’s Government are prepared to admit definitely that
tne two treaties in question are no longer operative, it is
necessary to communicate them to Ibn Saud. if 0 n the other
hand vhis is the attitude of His Majesty’s Government, it seems
desirable that Ibn Saud should be informed accordingly, since
it is probable that he is already acquainted with the existence,
it not the tenns, of the treaties in question.
lo. I p m to request that the enclosures in this letter
may be returned to this department with your reply.
