the destruction of their premises by the French in the autumn of 1759,
seem to have found a temporary refuge in the old Dutch Factory,
and at the beginning of 1760 negotiations for leasing or purchasing
it were opened with the Dutch Chief at Kharag ; but they must either
have failed or been dropped, for in 1763, as we have seen in another
place, the Persians had been in occupation of the building for three
years. Early in 1760 it was expected that the Dutch would endeavour
to seize Hormuz, and the British Agent was ordered to take measures
to forestall them; but they did not move.

the goods landed from her, the French before their departure received a with Britain,
letter from Nadir Shah in which they were urged to re-establish their
settlement at Bandar "'Abbas,—a turn of events which was viewed with
some alarm by the British and probably by the Dutch, neither of whom
paid customs at Bandar "'Abbas. In 1736 another French ship seems to
have visited the port; for in the spring of 1737, on the arrival of the
French vessel " Herene 33 {sic) at Bandar "'Abbas, her commander, M.
