To the same; dated 16th HYDERY. (23d November.)

YOUR letter has been received. Keeping a strict watch* upon Luch­mun Râo, the brother of Sumâjee Pundit,* you must encamp with your army within gunshot of the fort of Kittoor, and send for the Daisye and Sumâjee Pundit. If they should come [to you] it will be well; otherwise you must, with the advice of Syed Humeed and Syed Ghuffâr, contrive, by some means or other,* to obtain possession of the said fortress for the Sircar.
