I really can't see any cause to leave Gombroon through Fear even of the worst
that a body of undisciplin'd Rabble can do. It is certainly requisite to keep
a Vessel of Force upon this Station until the Kingdom be throughly settled,
for however improbable it may seem, it is not impossible that we may at last
have Occasion for such a Eetreat, and those (if there be any) that have evil
Intentions towards us will never think it worth their while to attempt the
taking our Factory An East India Company trading post. when we have an Opportunity of leaving the shore with
all the most valuable Effects, whenever we find Occasion for so doing. To
conclude, what I have here troubled your Honours with on this subject, I shall
take leave with the greatest submission humbly to offer it as my opinion
that the Scueme of settling upon any of the Islands is in no wise advisable,
unless the King's Phirmaund can be previously obtained and even then it
might not perhaps answer the expence of building Fortifications and maintain
ing a large Garrison.
Shahrook Shan resides still at Mushat, in the same manner as if he was
only Governour of that city.
Your most obedient Servant
