More serious, too, than these difficulties was the fact that British trade at
Bushehr had been brought to a standstill by an embargo, imposed under
Karim Khan^s orders, on the exportation of specie from Persia. There
were thus questions relating to Bushehr and to British trade to be
adjusted by Mr. Skipp, apart from that of a settlement with the Ka^ab.

indifference and could not obtain an interview with Karim Khan ; and
at the beginning of August matters appeared to the Agent at Basrah
to have reached such a pass that he had directed Mr. Skipp to leave
Shiraz at the end of that month, and had givpn orders that, on

would not allow him to do, took a more favourable turn; and at length,

that be would immediately hand over the Ka'ab fleet to the British,
a condition which he professed to consider dishonourable to himself as
protector of the tribe, and which, moreover, he might have found it
difficult or impossible to fulfil, — and the Agent and Council at Basrah,
