A letter from Ameen Rihani to King Abdulaziz Ibn Saud, undated. Rihani discusses the situation in Palestine, and the British policy in it, and the idea of annexation of TransJordan and making "Abdullah the Prince or King of the land" . Rihani also asks King Abdulaziz whether he wants to "takeover" the Jauf region (today in Saudi Arabia near the borders with Jordan). He also expresses his concerns of the attacks held by Faisal al-Duwaish and his Ikhwan (brother tribesmen) against tribes in Iraq and Kuwait, as such act will discredit the reputation of King Abdulaziz.
