To KUMRÛDDEEN KHÂN; dated 28th Extra AHMEDY. (14th April.)

YOUR letter of the 25th Extra Ahmedy, (11th April), informing us of your arrival, with the forces under your command, at Nergûnd, and of your interview with Bûrhânûddeen, has passed under our view, and the particulars contained in it are fully revealed to us. Uniting yourself to the division belonging to Bûrhânûddeen, you must advance in open day against the enemy, and attacking them with vigour, chastise them in a manner that shall deter them from confronting you again.
