There are 4 books to go through but I'm pretty hopeful that she mentioned this officer somewhere in there. And thanks for the suggestion of trying the London Gazette. That will be next if I don't find anything in the diaries. I will let you all know if I find anything interesting.

"M. Grube, Head of the Russian Bank in Teheran is entirely a different type of man. He is apparently most communicative but I suspect him of affecting a frankness of manner in order to encourage confessions from others."
Also, she mentions a Miss Stone several times who was being held captive and the US Consul General Dickinson negotiating for her release in Sophia. Some of their current events don't sound all that different from our current events.
