To the same; dated 3d BYÂZY. (9th March.)

Tukojee Hûlkar and the Guyckwâr have moved towards you with foul intentions:* you will, therefore, take up a position with your army near the fort of Dhârwâr, and omit not a single measure of precaution in that situation. You must, moreover, enjoin all the inhabitants of that quarter to be cautious and watchful.


The Sultan seems here to revert to his former orders (see Letter CCXX) respecting the position to be occupied by Bûrhânûddeen, but which he revoked by Letter CCXXV, in compliance, apparently, with the suggestion of that general and the superior officers of his army. We shall soon see him wave the point again. (Letter CCXLVIII.)
