Letter from Ameen Rihani to King Abdulaziz Ibn Saud, undated

Description

رسالة من امين الريحاني الى الملك عبد العزيز، التاريخ غير مذكور، ومعنون في اعلى الصفحة "خصوصي". فيها يخبر الريحاني الملك عبد العزيز انه ارسل لجلالته رسالة قبل شهر لكن لم يستلم جوابا عليها. ويهنيء الريحاني الملك على نصر قد حققه الاخير - لم يسمه الريحاني. ويطلب الريحاني من الملك في الرسالة الموافقة على قدوم الاول الى جدة لتقديم التهنئة مع المهنئين، ومعللا سبب طلبه بما كتبه له الملك عبد العزيز السنة الماضية قبل سفر الريحاني من جدة "بان اسافر اذا كنت ارغب ان احافظ على صداقتكم" فترك الاخير جدة على اثرها. ويسأل الريحاني الملك في اخر الرسالة "هل يجوز" له العودة الى جدة من دون ان يستأذن الملك؟
A letter from Ameen Rihani to King Abdulaziz, undated. Rihani tells King Abdulaziz that he sent a letter to him a month ago, and he hasn't received any reply. Rihani congratulates the King on a victory. Rihani asks Ibn Saud permission to come to Jeddah to be among visitors congratulating him, the reason Rihani asks permission is that - as he wrote it - King Abdulaziz wrote to Rihani last year and asked him to leave Jeddah if he "would like to maintain the friendship [of the King]", and so Rihani did and left Jeddah. At the end of the letter Rihani asks if he allowed to return to Jeddah without the King's permission? - what Rihani meant is that he cannot go back to Jeddah without the King's permission since the latter asked him to leave the last time.
