To SYED PEER; KILAADÂR of BANGALORE; same date. (3d February.)

YOU write “that about three hundred recruits have been entertained “for the Jyshe and Ehshâm [corps], and the abstracts of them regularly “made out and delivered to the Mûtusuddies of the Dewâny,* notwith­standing which Râjah Râm Chundur brings forward excuses.”* It is known. You have [it would seem] laid your instructions by in the niche of forgetfulness,* or you could not engage in such an improper and senseless altercation. What the aforesaid Râjah represents is perfectly right. If you would look into your instructions, there would be no necessity for your writing to us on the subject.
