Content

The letter is a reply to Jones’s query over the extent of his jurisdictive powers at Bushire (folio 172). Anderson refers Jones to a letter sent to one of his predecessors, Lieutenant-Colonel Samuel Hennell, which stated that granting the Resident consular jurisdiction would be inconsistent with the commercial treaty concluded between Britain and Persia.
