To—The  King  !  Shelter  of  the  World  ! 

    Your  Majssty’s  orders  in  the  first  instance  were  to  the effect  that  such  men  as  were  late  in  joining  the  Royal  forces, should  be  kept  on  as  supernumeraries,  in  the  grades  in  which they  had  formerly  served.  This  order  gave  entire satisfaction to  all  the  Officers  and  Soldiery.  Those  men  who  have  been late  in arriving  have  now,  however,  given  a  petition,  and  have had  a  seniority  list  prepared.  All  the  Privates  and  Non-Commissioned  Officers  have  in  this  matter  accordingly  representedto  their  Commissioned  Officers  the  justice  they  will  suffer,  if, to  the  prejudice  of  the  evident  claims  of  those  who,  coming long  before,  have  been  daily  in  the  batteries,  and  have  on every  occasion  yielded  obedience  to  all  Your  Majesty’s commands,  places  are  given  to  men  who  have  joned  after such  great  delay.  We,  all  the  Commissioned  Officers  of  the 3rd  Regiment  of  Infantry,  therefore  pray  that  Your  Majesty’s first  order,  which  gave  such  entire  satisfaction  to  the  whole Army,  may  be  allowed  to  continue undisturbed  force.  Considering  it  necessary,  we  have  laid  the  matter  before  Your Majesty.  (Prayers  for  the  prosperity  of  the  reign.)  Petition of  the  slaves Jewaram,  Ajodhya  Chobe  and  others,  all  the Commissioned  Officers  of  the  3rd  Regiment  of  Infantry.
