TitleIncomplete letter [from the Shah of Persia?] to George, the Prince Regent.
Daten.d. [? 1815]
Writer[Shah of Persia?]
AddresseeGeorge, Prince Regent
DescriptionThe letter mentions that the Ambassador, Henry Ellis, was received by the Shah, that he expressed friendship and good wishes, which were reciprocated, and took his leave. The letter also mentions the improvement of relations between Iran and Russia, and the Shah's opinion that it would be appropriate to appoint Ellis as Ambassador to St. Petersburg. The improvement of Anglo-Russian relations would be mutually beneficial.

[Undated and unsigned. Sir Henry Ellis was Ambassador to Persia 1814-1815 (and 1835-1836), hence the suggested date, as the wording may suggest the letter was written when Ellis left the post.]
