letter No* C/333 dated the 21st May 1938 addressed to the Shaikh
of Qatar on this subject, and also a translation of the reply which
I have now received from him*
3* The Shaikh's letter is very badly worded but it is suffi

to him, provided he receives some guarantee that Governments of
foreign countries over whose Moslem subjects the Shaikh will exer
