DESCRIPTION

This is the facsimile of a Modi letter written by Rani Lakshmi Bai on 8 Falgun (19 February 1858) to Nana’s nephew, Rao Saheb, who had made Kalpi his headquarters. In February 1858 the Rani felt urgent need for military assistance from the ‘Peshwa’ in view of the advance of the British forces towards Jhansi and appealed to Rao Saheb for such help.

The last two words in the letter, He Vidn{;apana (this is my request) are written in the Rani’s hand.
The letter was received at Kalpi on 10 Falgun and was found among the papers of the Indian leaders captured there by the British authorities. It is now in the National Archives of India.
