Where can i find primary sources about the sykes-picot agreement?

The Sykes-Picot Agreement, reached on 15-16 May 1916 by Sir Edward Grey and Paul Cambon, divided the Middle East into areas of influence for Britain and France (among others). The agreement igned France control over modern Syria and Lebanon. Much of Palestine was to remain under international control. The agreement does however make mention of the possibility of cessation of land to an Arab state.
