Revised up to the end of 1929 the record of treaties with Burma makes interesting reading. The first of these recorded is a commercial arrangement with the King of Ava in 1795, and those that follow demonstrate the steady progress of English intervention with a Treaty... for the establishment of a Court at Mandalay and various arrangements between the British and Chinese with regard to the Burmese frontier.
