To—The  Nourisher  of  the  Poor  ! 

        RESPECTFULLY  SHEWETH.—That  when  the  King,  after 

holding  his  Court,  had  retired  to  his  own  apartments , Moulavy  Fazl-ul-Hak,  Nawab  Ahmad  Kuli  Khan  Bahadur, Budhan  Sahib  and  Mirza  Khair  Sultan  Bahadur,  had  the orders  written  which  are  detailed  below  :  that  all  the  officers of  the  army  came  to  Nawab  Ahmad  Kuli  Khan,  demanding money  for  expenses:  and  that  the  King  again  came  out  at 12  o’clock.  I  have  submitted  these  matters  for  your  information.  Moreover,  all  the  order  above  referred  to  came  under the  King’s  inspection.  ‘The  queen  of  the  world!  was  asleep, and  the  seals  have  therefore  not  been  affixed.  They  will, however,  be  affixed  at  3  o’clock.  It  is  now  2  o’clock  P.M, and  though  the  King’s  Court  for  the  day  has  been  ended,  the whole  of  the  Officers  are  still  sitting  about  Nawab  Ahmad Kuli  Khan.
