1906 Excerpt: ...stopped at Turbat-i-Haidari this year; the trade
in British goods being carried on through middlemenin Meshed and
Yezd. As consignments of goods from these two centres are mixed
with Russian and local goods, and brought in in small consignments
by many roads, and are also largely re-exported to Khaf, Barkharz
and Afghanistan, it is impossible to check this trade accurately.
The figures in the accompanying table have been given me by the
leading broker of the place; his version of the exports corresponds
exactly with the figures in my registers, but I cannot help

through Meshed, Of the exports to Afghanistan, dried fruit, copper
utensils, silk and madder, amounting to about 425J., are local
produce, while the cotton tissues (5,684/.) are mostly British
re-consigned from Yezd. The Afghan trade through Turbat-i-Haidari
is decreasing to such an extent owing to the operations of the
Jewish and Armenian agents at Karez, who consign through Meshed,
that this has ceased to be a customs station. Trade with
Russia.--Exports 25,17U, imports 2S.782/. Nearly the whole of the
exports to Russia in the customs figures consist of wool, in value
22,747i, which, as has already been mentioned, is c...
