To BÛRHÂNÛDDEEN; dated 15th HYDERY. (22d November.)

WE sometime since wrote, to desire that possession might be obtained of the fort of Kittoor. You must (no matter by what contrivance or pretext) get possession of it for the Sircar. If some degree of violence even should be requisite for the purpose, let it be employed: and let the present be considered as a most urgent injunction.

N.B. Two letters, to the same effect as the foregoing one, were written to Syed Humeed and Syed Ghuffâr, both of them belonging to Bûrhânûddeen’s army.
