The Journal ends at Salami, just before Herzfeld reached Mashhad. From Bombay to Mashhad via Kabul, Sistan (Kūh-i Khwāja and Shahristān), Kuhistan (Birjand, Khargird).

During this trip which ultimately led him to Tehran (Iran), Herzfeld visited Kuh-i Khwaja (Iran), Shahristan (Iran), Birjand (Iran), Qa'In (Iran), and Khargird (Iran).

Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 1: Travel Journals; Diary of Expedition from Kabul (Afghanistan) to Mashhad (Iran)
Arrangement:
In the original arrangement of the Ernst Herzfeld Archive, Travel Journals were included in a larger body of diverse material acknowledged by Ernst Herzfeld as his study collection. In the early 1970s, Joseph Upton, for research purpose, rearranged the collection and created a specific series (Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 1: Travel Journals, 1905-1928) for eight travel journals. For some reason, Upton has given this journal an accession number related to the series he created for the notebooks (Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 3: Notebooks, 1904-1946, 1957, n.d.), probably following Herzfeld's original organization.
