Excerpt from The English Factories in India, 1661-64
The present volume has been prepared on the same plan as the preceding one that is to say, a chronicle has been given, year by year (divided geographically), of the leading events, and these have been described mainly by me... ans of quotations from the con temporary documents preserved at the India Office and the Public Record Office. The only change that has been made in the scheme is the suppression, to save space, of the separate chapters on Persia. So far as the letters to and from that country bear upon Indian topics, they have been dealt with in the sections devoted to the Surat Presidency and since the East India Company's trade with Persia at that time was at a very low ebb, the change has involved little or no loss from the point of View of the history of the Company. The letters contain, it is true, some interesting references to the internal affairs of Persia; but these have had to be left to be dealt with by some other historian.
