About this item


This bundle consists of summaries, and partial transcripts, of secret letters received from both the President in Council (8 October 1855, Number 55) and the Government of Bombay (13 and 17 October 1855, Numbers 62-65). The amount of detail for each entry therefore varies.

The dispatch from the President in Council (folio 93r) is concerned with the site for the new city of Dalhousie and the construction of a lighthouse on the Alguada Reef.

The section from Bombay (folios 93v-95) discusses the consequences of the peace agreement reached between the Oulaki and the Foutheli, and finding volunteers from India to serve as mounted police at Aden. It also provides brief updates on Turkish Arabia, Persia, and the Slave Trade.
