1,300 Tumane more on account of customs to the English Agent than
was admitted by the latter. The visit of the Shah in July 1699 to the
English Factory at Isfahan was a serious blow to the Dutch, for it
resulted in an immediate change of attitude on the part of the Shahbandar,
who now strictly prohibited the erection by them of a fort at Bandar
'Abbas; and, though they begged that the honour of a royal visit might
be conferred on their own Factory also, they did not obtain it, their argu
ment that the Stadtholder had become K ing of England being apparentlv
overborne in the mind of the Shah by the rejoinder of the English Agent,
that the Dutch as a nation had no king at all and were therefore
unworthy of attention.
In 1705, the trouble from pirates still continuing, it was again feared
that the Dutch might take the matter up in order to gain favour with
the Shah ; but once more this expectation was not fulfilled.

I ersians and constantly so with the Arabs; and their relations with the
English, by whom they were somewhat distrusted, were not invariably
cordial.
The recovery of the Portuguese share of the customs at Kung seems
to have been attended by the same difficulties as those with which we
have become familiar at Bandar 'Abbas. On one occasion the Portuguese,
by resorting to a naval demonstration, obtained payment of some arrears;
and the fact that their action was quoted in 1670 by an English Agent,
as a precedent for similar measures which he recommended at Bandar
Abbas, helps to fix approximately the date of the occurrence. In
1681 or 1682 the Portuguese, by a second naval demonstration on a
small scale, intimidated the Shahbandar into disgorging the sum of 9,000
Tumans which was then due to them. It is stated that after 1711 nothing
was paid to the Portuguese on account of their share of the Kung
ustoms. About 1721 there was a small trade at Kung, carried on chiefly
by Indians, both Hindus and Muhammadans; but the prosperity of tlie
