About this item

Content

The item consists of a rough draft of a report, compiled by the Examiner’s Office, on the separate diplomatic missions of Sir Harford Jones and Brigadier-General John Malcolm to the Court of Persia [Iran]. Jones’s mission, conducted from 1807 to 1811, was on behalf of King George III of the United Kingdom. Malcolm's mission, from 1808 to 1809, was on behalf of the Governor-General of India.

The draft has been heavily edited and there are numerous comments, notes, and references to specific correspondence in the margin. There are extensive quotes from some of this correspondence, particularly that of Jones and Malcolm themselves.

At the end of the report (folios 351-360) are summaries of enclosures in Jones’s letter of 13 December 1809. The main body of the draft was distributed in August 1809, so it is probable that the summaries were added later as an update.
