 of Original Document:


 

To—The  King!  Adoratien  of  the  World  ! 

          I  have  this  day  received  certain  information  that  near 2,000  Troops,  who  have  revolted  from  the  British,  and  are  now coming  from  Nasirabad,  are  encampted  at  Garhi  Harsaru to-day,  and  will  be  here  to-morrow.  There  are  no  means  for arranging  for  the  usual  supplies  at  this  place.  I  hope,  therefore,  that  some  Officer  or  Troopers  will  be  deputed  by  Your Majesty  on  this  duty.  (Prayers  for  the  King’s  prosperity.) A  further  petition  is,  that  your  petitioner  had  no  previous knowledge of  the  approach  of  these  Troops,  or  he  might  have made  arrangements  in  anticipation.  The  information  brought to-day  was  quite  unexpected.  May  it  be  suggested  that  such orders  should  now  be  issued  as  can  be  carried  out.  Petition of  the  slave  Zabtay  Khan,  attached  to  the  Police  Station  of Basant.  No  order  on  the  petition. NOTE  ON  THE  REVERSE—‘‘Orders  have  been  issued,  16th June  1857”.
