Sa^id himself afterwards pressed foi the approval by the Government of
India of an effort at annexation. It was withheld, however, chiefly in
view of the unlikelihood of success and of the probability of offence heino-
caused to the Wahhabis and Persians, and the enterprise remained
unattempted.

of Sa'id's prospects in'Oman may have afforded some just cause for
resentment on the Saiyid's part; but it is difficult to understand why the
Indian Government, unless they were in ignorance of the facts, did not
at once protest effectively against certain of his proceedings which were
incompatible with the Agreements of 179S and 1800. In June 180? a
treaty was concluded at Mauritius between the French Captain-General
de Caen and an envoy from Sa'id, for which, in the following year,
a revised treaty was substituted. A French Consular Agent, M. Dallons,
was about the same time sent to reside at Masqat, where he remained
at least until 1810, and French influence became for a short time
predominant in the Saiyid's councils. These events took place notwith

throwing supplies into those places by means of his own ships—destroyed
for a time the power and prestige of the French in East African and
Arabian waters; and during the next five years their flag and influence
were excluded from the countries bordering the Indian Ocean,-a state of
matters which compelled Sa'id to seek a good understanding with Britain.
