DESCRIPTION

OUR GOVERNOR-GENERAL OF INDIA IN Council.

Para.l. We now reply to the Governor-General's Foreign letter, dated 16th February, No. 10 of 1849, relative to the succession to the Throne of Hindustan.

 

RECORDS OF THE HINDUSTAN AGENCY

2. The Heir-Apparent having died, and no successor having been yet recognized, you consider that on the demise of the present King the Titular Sovereignty may be abolished; that the junior branches may be made independent of the head, receiving separate pensions from the British treasury; that the Palace of Delhi may be evacuated and another place of residence be provided for the Royal Family; and that the Prince and his immediate family should be alone exempted from judicial process.

3. We have given the most careful consideration to the subject of this letter and to the grounds adduced by you for the measures which you propose.

4. We are satisfied that those measures will be political with reference to the general interests of India, and that they are not unjust to the individuals immediately concerned. We have, therefore, come to the determination of conveying to you full authority to carry them into effect.

We are, &c.,
