To KUMRÛDDEEN; dated 5th DÂRÂEY. (18th July.)

[AFTER an immaterial passage, respecting a supply of money, the letter thus proceeds:]—

All the operations of the siege are completed, and the walls of the place demolished: why, then, this delay? If the garrison will evacuate the fort on terms, it will be well; otherwise, watching a suitable oppor­tunity, and acting with the concurrence of the Sipahdârs, and other commanders of the army, you must take the place by assault.
