Scope and content

Perhaps you may remember the day I came to see you with my son and that you informed me that you were considering arranging for a honourable discharge for me from my services. I am grateful for your kindness. Meanwhile, at this time of the harvest the situation in the country is getting worse and because of the extortion and mismanagement of the tahsildar most of the cultivators are running away and the remaining inhabitants are complaining. Although I do not consider this a very pleasant duty it is essential that I inform you about the mismanagement of the company's tahsiladar. I do not wish to ask anything more than my pension to support my dependants. As I am not keeping very well I wish to go away from this place for a change of air. I would be grateful if you could issue orders for my pension to be paid.
