About this item
This bundle consists of summaries, and partial transcripts, of secret letters received from both the President in Council (22 August 1855, Numbers 46-48) and the Government of Bombay (one undated and 29 August 1855, Number 57). The amount of detail for each entry therefore varies.
The subject matter of the letters from the President in Council (folios 67-69) includes the construction of police border posts along the Burmese Frontier, a proposal to build a wall around the cantonment at Peshawar, and an update on the dispute between the Maharaja of Cashmere [Kashmir] and his nephew Jowahir Singh.
The section from Bombay (folios 70-74) covers Russian objections to the export of animals from Turkish Arabia to the Crimea by the British, and proposals for raising a detachment of irregular horse or mounted police at Aden.
