About this item
This bundle consists of summaries, and partial transcripts, of secret letters received from both the President in Council (22 October 1855, Numbers 56-58) and the Government of Bombay (1 and 2 November 1855, Numbers 66-69). The amount of detail for each entry therefore varies.
The section from the President in Council (folios 91-105) includes news from the civil wars in Bokhara [Bukhara] and Khiva, updates from Afghanistan, updates on the progress of Nepalese-Thibetan [Tibetan] peace negotiations, discussion over the policy of the Government of India towards independent tribes along its frontier with Burmah [Burma], and reports on the Government of India's diplomatic mission to the Court of Ava – including details of receptions with the King and Queen, and a reception with the Heir Apparent.
The dispatches from Bombay (folios 106-107) are concerned with warnings issued to officers of the Indian Navy over their conduct towards foreign dignitaries, and the naval blockade of Berbera.
