About this item
This bundle consists of summaries, and partial transcripts, of secret letters received from both the President in Council (22 September 1855, Numbers 52-54) and the Government of Bombay (3 October 1855, Numbers 60-61). The amount of detail for each entry therefore varies.
The section from the President in Council (folios 83-87r) discusses an attack on the Kokan Pass by the Aka Kheil [Aka Khel] of the Afreedees [Afridi], the departure of the Kokan Envoy from Peshawar, the progress of the Government of India's diplomatic mission to Ava, and provides updates from Afghanistan.
The dispatches from Bombay (87v-92) discuss a proposal to withdraw troops from Turkish Arabia, arrangements for peace between the Oulaki and Foutheli, a proposal to send Indian Cavalry to Aden for policing purposes, the policy towards slave ships arriving at Aden, and the blockade of the coastline of the Habr Owel tribe for the alleged murder of officers of the Somali Expedition.
