The Gold and Silver Road of Trade and Friendship free pdf When British diplomats Captain William Couperus McLeod and Dr. David Richardson set out on their missions to the Tai states, their aim was trade and friendship.

The first Europeans to officially visit the region, they were fluent in Burmese and had a basic knowledge of Tai. They wrote superbly of their journeys and diplomatic exchanges. Their journals are published here in full, with detailed notes, for the first time.
