The article presents two letters written by J.B. Glubb, the leader of Jordan's army. The first document is the telegram of 11 January 1956 and it was written to the War Office in London. The second document is the three-page letter of 2 February 1956 which is addressed to the Chief of British Army Staff, General Gerald Templer. The author has discovered these letters in the National Archives in London. Their content has been recently declassified (2007). The content of these two documents is presented together with the author's commentary. The telegram of 11 January 1956 shows fundamental facts connected with the riots in Jordan in January 1956. In the letter of 1956 the Legion commander analyzed political reasons and possible effects of these disturbances. The most interesting is the view of J.B.Glubb on the matter of political activity of Jordanian army officers. Glubb suggested that military coup d'etat would be a positive event from the British point of view. The author's commentary shows the importance of these fragments
