The Russian elchee offered to contribute 300 tomans (150l.), but his donation was refused by the colonels of the regiments, who raised the money among themselves.
When the latter has seen the slaves, they retire to another house, leaving the transaction to be completed by no less a person than an elchee, or ambassador, or by a dellāl, or broker.
See a very amusing story in the picturesque 'Persian Sketches' of that famous elchee, Sir John Malcolm.] [Footnote 27: page 75.
