Chapter Summary

At the end of August the author set out again, this time to travel up to Khurramabad by the route taken by most of the caravan traffic and then, if circumstances allowed, go on to Tehran in order to report to H.M. Minister at first hand on the situation in Khuzistan. For the last stage of the author's journey through Luristan the principal tribe to be squared was the Bayranvand, whose khans claimed to be descended from a certain Mirza Ahmad Khan who had married a niece of Karim Khan Zand (reg. 1750-1779) while in that monarch's service at Shiraz. They had taken advantage of the weakness of the administration to squat on most of the prosperous villages in the broad and fertile valley of Silakhur in which Burujird is situated, and so had grown powerful and rich at the expense of the lawful owners and the peasantry.
