See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A call to stop the Anti-French and Anti-British intriguss in the Arabic countries was issued to-day by Emir Abdullah, ruler of Trans-Judania, when he delivered a speech in Amman, in the presence of his people and army.

“The Srabs hope to become finally the masters of their countries”, the Emir declared, “but they are not in a position to oppose the foreign powers by armed forces.” He therefore warned his countrymen against the Anti-French and Anti-British intriguers who seek shelter in Trang-Judania.
