To—The  King  !  Shelter  of  the  World  

        RESPECTFULLY  SHEWETH,— That  before  men  are  employed in  the  Magazine,  it  is  necessary  that  each  individual  should  be made  to  declare  his  place  of  residence;  and  the  correctness of  his  statement  on  this  point  should  be  tested  by  a  reference to  the  place  itself,  or  he  might  be  made  to  furnish  security. And  further,  a  descriptive  roll  of  him  should  be  prepared  and should  be  placed  in  the  office,  and  he  should  then  be  employed. If  these  precautions  are  observed,  no  fears  for  the  safety  of the  Magazine  need  be  entertained;  but  if,  without  inquiry, every  one  is  indiscriminately  engaged,  emissaries  of  the  enemy may  obtain  admission,  and  cause  much  damage.  Moreover one  officer  with  a  clerk,  might  be  stationed  in  the  Magazine, for  the  sole  purpose  of mustering  and  inspecting  the  labourers, morning  and  evening,  to  see  that  no  strangers  or  agents  of the  enemy  are  admitted.  Your  slave  presents  this  petition solely  from  feelings  of  zeal,  and  relies  on  Your  Majesty’s kindness  and consideration  for  the  issue  of  orders,  under  Your Majesty’s  signature,  that  efficient  arrangements  for  the  protection  of  the Magazine  may  be  observed.  (Prayers  for  the prosperity  of  the  reign  )  Petition  of  the  slave  Bhawani  Singh, Private  of  the  30th  Regiment  Native  Infantry. 

 

Autograph  order  by  the  King,  in  pencil 

 

       Mirza  Moghal  will  quickly  make  the  necessary  arrangments.  Precautions  in  this  matter  above  all  others,  are  preeminently  necessary. 

      Order  without  signature  or  seal,  apparently  by  Mirza Moghal.  Ordered  that  arrangements  be  made,  dated  23rd August  1857.
