Example text

William Hawkins who commanded the third voyage of the chartered East India Company carried a letter from King James to the emperor and was royally received at Agra in 1609 by Jahangir and co-opted into temporary service. 1 Granted a licensed monopoly for England’s India trade in eastern waters, the directors and their factors learned by experience that privileges were easier to secure than to enforce on provincial authorities who exercised their own controls over foreign merchants. In 1615 the embassy of Sir Thomas Roe from James I to Emperor Jahangir raised the level of client supplication through five years of patient diplomacy for further privileges in Gujarat but no general treaty covering concessions in northern India.

26 Indian States In a society where politics and patronage were indistinguishable, construction of a commercial network by an intrusive maritime company and its servants offended some vested commercial and political interests, while encouraging others.

The Company existed on mammoth debts, and Awadh could not survive without retaining the services of a hierarchy of nobility and landmanagers.
