Emir Abdullah, ruler of Transjordania, has sent a letter to Sir John Chancellor, High Commissioner of Palestine, threatening reprisals, unless he takes measures to prevent the smuggling of arms into Palestine by Zionists. The Transjordan ruler declares unless measures are taken by the authorities, it will be difficult for him to prevent the Arabs of Transjordania from helping the Arabs in Palestine.
