To—The  King    Shelter  of  the  World 

         Your  Majesty  :—This  slave  is  a  land-holder  of  Farridabad,  and  is  a  Silvermith  by  caste.  The  matter  he  has  to  submit is  that  50,000  rupees,  more  or  less,  belonging  to  the  Government  of  the  East  India  Company,  are  now  present  in  the subordinate  Revenue  Office  at  Palwal.  Some  of  the  Ballabhgarh  Rajah’s  Officials  went  there,  but  the  land-holders of  the place  would  not  allow  them  to  take  the  money.  Your  slave, therefore,  prays  that  100  Horsemen  and  50  Infantry  may  be sent  with  him,  that  he  may  bring  it  away,  and  pay  it  into  the Royal  Treasury.  Your  zealous  slave  is  exerting  himself  solely that  he  may  obtain  a  subsistence.  It  was  necessary,  and  is submitted.  Further  on  perusal  of  this  petition  let  orders  be issued,  and,  with  the  Cavalry  and  Infantry,  let  a  means  of  conveyance  for  your  slave  be  also  bestowed.  Petition  of  Bhutia, land-holder  of  Farridabad. 

Autograph  order  by  the  King,  in  Pencil 

        Mirza  Moghal  will  speak  to  the  Officers  of  the  Army,  and 

will  immediately  take  steps  to  send  for  this  Treasure.
