About this record

Content

This bundle consists of summaries of official secret letters received, from the Governor General of India in Council (8 April 1857, Numbers 16-17), and from Bombay [presumably the Government of Bombay] (16 April 1857, Numbers 80-87).

The summaries of the letters from the Governor General acknowledge the receipt of previous letters, and also relate to the arrival of the small force sent to China [to Hong Kong?] from Singapore. The summaries of the letters from Bombay mostly concern Persia, including troop movements as a result of the Treaty between Great Britain and Persia.
