closest connections ; and the more that those who are responsible for their
administration see of each other and learn of each other’s views and needs, the
better must it be for both.
I think that I have said enough, therefore, to show that if it is a novel
thing, it is yet no unnatural thing, that the Viceroy of India should come here
to pay you a visit, and to see how Indian interests and Indian subjects are faring
in this allied and adjacent country. Perhaps in my own case the justification
is not weakened by the fact that l have for many years taken a deep interest in
Persia, and have always entertained the warmest desire that the ancient friend
ship between the British Government and the illustrious Sovereign of this
country should be strengthened and deepened as time goes on.
Gentlemen, I concur with you in thinking that it would be a great
advantage to you to be connected by telegraph with the outer world ; and
nothing would give me greater pleasure than to be instrumental, with the good
offices of the Persian Government, in bringing about such a consummation.
In conclusion let me offer you my best wishes for your continued and
increasing prosperity in the future.
Enclosure V to 15-
Speech by the Viceroy in proposing the health of Bis Majesty the Shah of
Persm at a dinner given by Bis Excellency on board the R. 1. M. S.
“ Bardinge ” to the Salar-i-Moazzam, Governor of the Gulf Ports, at
Ling ah, on the 24th November 1903.
I rise to propose the health of His Imperial Majesty the Shah of Persia.
Two days ago, when we touched at the first port in His Majesty’s dominious,
I had the honour of being received by our guests of this evening, the Salar-i-
Mpazzam, Governor of the Gulf Ports, who had been specially deputed by his
royal master to greet me, and to whom it is my pleasant privilege to return the
Compliment this evening. A few days hence, when we arrive at Bush ire,
1 understand that I am further to he welcomed by one of the most distinguished
of Persian statesmen, the Ala ed Howleh, Governor-General of Pars, who has
been specially commissioned by the Shah for that purj^ose. I desire to return
my sincere thanks for the compliment thus conveyed to me and to the Govern
ment which 1 represent by His Imperial Majesty, There is not one of us who
does not feel a peculiar pleasure in touching upon Persian soil. For many
centuries the British and Persian peoples have been connected together by the
closest ties of friendship and esteem. Between India and Persia in particular
there exist very intimate relations of politics, mutual interest, and trade. We
hope that the friendship that has thus endured for so long may continue to grow,
and that nothing may ever happen to disturb it. We entertain the warmest
wishes for the integrity and welfare of His Majesty’s dominions, and for the
health and long rule of their illustrious Sovereign. It is with the utmost
pleasure that I entertain his representative this evening, and that I now ask the
present company to drink to the health of His Imperial Majesty the Shah.
Enclosure VI to 15-
Peply of His Excellency the Viceroy to an Address of TVeleome presented to
him on the 3rd December 1903 on board the R. I. M. S. “ Hardmge ”
by a deputation of the British subjects and residents of Bushire.
Gentlemen, —I am very glad to see you here, and to receive your friendly
address. I am sorry to have been prevented from receiving you on shore, when
I might have been introduced to an even larger number of British residents and
merchants at this important place.
A A iceroy of India coming to Bushire in the year 1903, though he be the
first occupant of that posi’.iou to visit these waters during his term of office, is
irresistibly reminded of his precursors a century gone by. He is, indeed, the
