Content Description

He writes by favour of the Board of Control. He cannot understand who recommendations of his case to Marquess Wellesley by Mr. Dundas and Earl Camden have not been attended to. He has received a gloomy letter from Benjamin Wyatt who says that Palmer & Co. think the portraits painted at Lucknow should have remained in India. He insists that they were painted by order of the Nabob for Sir John Macpherson to whom they will be given when the Nabob's Bond is honoured.
