Cottton had been appointed ambassador to Persia as a result of the return of Robert Sherley in 1623. The embassy had produced two rival ambassadors, Sherley and Nagd Ali Beg (Nogdi Ali Beg), each of whom had denounced the other as an imposter. James I therefore decided to send Cotton as his ambassador to Persia to clarify these matters, accompanied by the two interested parties, Sherley and Ali Beg. Thomas Herbert was to accompany the mission. Sailing via the Cape of Good Hope, Madagascar and Goa, the party landed at Surat on 27.11.27. There Ali Beg deliberately took on overdose of opium and killed himself .. Herbert sailed on 18.12.27 for Persia and landed at Gombroon .. they continued to Teheran, and then to Qazvin where both Robert Sherley and Cotton died of dysentery. Herbert, however, continued his travels, visiting Lar, Shiraz, Esfahan, Tehran, Qum, Kashan and eventually returning to Gombroon. From there he made his way to Surat (December 1628), and in April 1629 sailed for London, visiting en route Ceylon, the Coromandel coast, Mauritius and St. Helena' (Howgego p.503/504).
