      To  the  effect,  that  the  statement  which  some  person  has made  to  you,  of  the  defeat  of  the  Royal  Troops  at  Delhi,  is altogether  a  false  and  lying  fabrication,  contrived  by  the


contemptible  iufidel-,  namely,  the  English  The  true  story  is, that  nearly  eighty  or  ninety  thousand  regular  organized  Military  Troops  are  now  present  here,  nearly  ten  or  fifteen  thousand  Regular  and  other  Cavalry  These  troops  are  constantly engaged,  night  and  day,  in  attacks  upon  the  infidels,  and  have driven  back  their  batteries  from  the  ridge.  In  three  or  four days  hence,  please  God,  the  whole  ridge  will  be  taken  when every  one  of  the  base  unbelievers  will  be  humbled  and  ruined, and  will  be  sent  to  hell.  You  are  therefore  directed  immediately  on  seeing  this  order,  to  use  every  endeavour  speedily  to reach  the  Royal  presence,  so  that  joining  the  army of  the  faithful,  you  may  give  proofs  of  your  zeal,  and  may  establish  your claims  to  renown.  Consider  this  imperative.
