Papers of David Urquhart : 1C - Correspondence

[previous section] [next section]

I C: TURKEY AND THE EAST: 1832- 1876.

 I C contains letters written whilst David Urquhart was first secretary at Constantinople (1836-7). It includes letters in I C1 and I C2 written 1832- 5 before David Urquhart's diplomatic appointment. David Urquhart was resident in England for some of this time but also undertook commercial missions to Europe and the East for Stratford Canning (S.C.) and was involved in the preparation of an Anglo Turkish Commercial Treaty. However these letters written before 1836 contain information on David Urquhart's appointment as first secretary in 1835 and his growing interest in Turkish affairs. Letters written after David Urquhart's dismissal from the diplomatic service are to be found in I C6A and I C9- 14 illustrating David Urquhart's lifelong concern with Turkish affairs.

For letters written from Constantinople see also: I B2, I B4. For letters connected with commercial expedition to Turkey see: I B4 file 4. For Turkey see also: II C which contain some letters in addition to manuscripts and III 26.

I C1: CORRESPONDENCE DURING DAVID URQUHART'S ABSENCE IN CONSTANTINOPLE: 1832-7 (one 1854-).
