The suggestion that Scottish sojourners shared similar social backgrounds and basic economic objectives detracts from the fact that different destinations forced the adoption of particular networks and identities. Scots arriving in the East faced a context quite unlike any other sector of British imperialism. 10 But none of these comparisons are useful beyond drawing attention to the fact that sojourning had certain basic characteristics. The Asian sector of the empire involved the greatest imbalance between ‘British’ and ‘native’ peoples.

Good European-Indian relations facilitated the accumulation of wealth and thus the likelihood of the sojourner returning home. The 1748 Madras journal of Lieutenant John Grant from Strathspey noted that European merchants ‘kept twenty to thirty of these black people’, including two dubashes (commercial agents) who were charged with carrying on trade with the ‘country black merchants’. Indian concubines also were a means by which Europeans initiated commercial opportunity. 32 It is clear that Indians could form an important element of a sojourner’s commercial network.
