CHAPTER V
PUBLIC LATTERS 1853-1855

ON June 26, 1853, the Czar issued the famous manifesto which announced that, all means of persuasion having been exhausted, Russian troops had been ordered to enter the Danubian principalities, "and thus show the Porte how far its obstinacy may lead it." Landor rightly interpreted the signs of a coming war, but it is hardly surprising if his political information was not absolutely correct in matters of detail. The attempt made by Russia to secure the Shah's co-operation in a war against Turkey was not successful. His Minister, Mirza Agha Khan, persuaded him that the combined forces of England, France and Turkey were stronger than those of Russia. Prince Dolgorouki, the Russian Envoy at Teheran, was so enraged at finding that the project of a Russo-Persian Alliance was defeated, that in an interview with the Mirza he angrily flourished his cane and struck him on the leg. The Mirza seized the cane and throwing it to the other end of the room, requested Prince Dolgorouki to withdraw. After that, the Shah was eager to join the Allies ; but, perhaps unwisely, his overtures were rejected, and he was advised to remain neutral. The following letter from Landor was published in the Examiner of July 9, 1853 :
