To MEER KÂZIM; same Date. (25th November.)

YOU are to buy yearly, and send to the Aumil of Mangalore, a hundred Utls* of almonds, and thirty Utls of pistachio-nuts.

You have still [on hand], of former importations, both Sandal wood and black pepper: you will now receive more of each. This stock you must not [immediately] expose to sale; but give out, that you have received our orders to discontinue the sale thereof [at Muscat], and to dispatch it to Juddah (where also we have a factory), and that you are, in consequence, about to do so. Having circulated this report, you must keep the goods by you, till the price of them advances twenty-five or thirty pagodas [the candy,] when you will sell them [without further delay].
