t Foreign Department, No. 148, dated ^ the Secretary of State for India
20th October 1910. to enclose copy of a letter! from
the Government of India on the
subject.
It will be seen that the Sheikh has now expressed his willingness to
pay the cost of the quarantine arrangements generally, but that expendi
ture has been authorised by the Government of India of an annual sum
not exceeding Rs. 1,250 (83b 6 s. Sd.) for the purposes mentioned in
paragraph 1 of the Political Agent’s letter, No. 319, dated the 13th May
last.
In view of the probability that the proposed measures of quarantine
may not suffice to prevent the occurrence of plague in Bahrein and of
the undesirability, referred to in Mr. Marling’s Despatch No. 14 (Com
mercial), dated the 16th May last, of bringing Bahrein into the dis
cussions of the Tehran Sanitary Council, the Earl of Crewe proposes,
subject to the concurrence of Secretary Sir E. Grey, to confirm the action

traps, Ac., Rs. 200. Preyentive inoculation, authorising the grant referred to,
Rs. 100. part only ol which! will necessarily
be expended.
He would further explain to the Government of India that the sanction
previously given is regarded as having lapsed, and that no expenditure
in excess of the annual sum of Rs. 1,250 should be incurred without
further report.
I am, &c.,
The Under Secretary of State,

Sir, 6 th January 1911.
I am directed by Secretary Sir E. Grey to acknowledge the
receipt of your letter of the 21 st ultimo respecting the quarantine
arrangements at Bahrein, and I am to inquire whether, in view of the
understanding that has now been arrived at between the Government of
India and the Sheikh, the Earl of Crewe would have any objection to
the Lords Commissioners of His Majesty’s Treasmy being now informed
that it will be no longer necessary to subscribe out of Imperial funds a
moiety of the cost of effecting improvements in the existing quarantine

Department of the 2nd April, they were prepared to sanction.
