 of Original Document:


 

To—The  King!  Dispenser  of  Blessings  on  the  World  ! 

             Shelter  of  Mankind,  etc. 

 

       RESPECTFULLY  SHEWETH,—That  the  order  passed  on  your slave’s petition,  that  besides  the  500  Soldiers  now  present,  he may  entertain  sufficient men  to  complete  a  Regiment  of  Infantry,  shall  be  carried  into  effect.  Your petitioner’s  request, however,  was  that  orders  might  he  issued,  to  change  the designation  of  the  force  under  your  slave,  from  that  of  Ali-Ghol, for  any  other  which  Your  Majesty  might  be  pleased  to  select, as  the  men  composing  it  have  been  thoroughly  drilled  and disciplined.

 

       Whatever  designation  Your  Majesty  may  now  assign  them, they  will  always  retain.  Your  slave,  therefore,  prays  that order  under  Your  Majesty’s  Seal  and  Signature  may  be issued  in  this  matter.  (Prayers  for  the  prosperity  of  the  reign.) Petition  of  the  lowly  Muhammad  Baksh  Ali,  Superintendent of  the  Jhansi  Jail,  officer  of  the  Ali-Ghol. 

 

 Autograph  order  by  the  King,  in  pencil 

 

          Shamshir-ud-dowlat  Bahadur?  will  have  an  order  written after  the  usual  form  of  such  orders.  The  name  “Faiz’’  is assigned  to  this  Regiment. 

 

Note on the   Reverse—An  order  has  been  written.  Dated 18th  August  1857.
