The Afghan Wars 1839-42 And 1878-80 (Fiscle Part-X)
Since It Was The British Complications With Persia Which Mainly Furnished
What Pretext There Was For The Invasion Of Afghanistan By An Anglo-Indian
Army In 1839, Some Brief Recital Is Necessary Of The Relations Between
Great Britain And Persia Prior To That Aggression.

By A Treaty, Concluded between England And Persia In 1814, The Former
State Bound Itself, In case Of The Invasion Of Persia By Any European
Nation, To Aid The Shah Either With Troops From India Or By The Payment
Of An Annual Subsidy In support Of His War Expenses. It Was A Dangerous
Engagement, Even With The _Caveat_ Rendering the Undertaking inoperative
If Such Invasion Should Be Provoked by Persia. During the Fierce Struggle
Of 1825-7, Between Abbas Meerza And The Russian General Paskevitch,
England Refrained from Supporting persia Either With Men Or With Money,
And When Prostrate Persia Was In financial Extremities Because Of The War
Indemnity Which The Treaty Of Turkmanchai Imposed upon Her, England Took
Advantage Of Her Needs By Purchasing the Cancellation Of The Inconvenient
Obligation At The Cheap Cost Of About £300,000. It Was The Natural Result
Of This Transaction That English Influence With The Persian Court Should
Sensibly Decline, And It Was Not Less Natural That In conscious Weakness
Persia Should Fall Under The Domination Of Russian Influence.
