NORTH-WESTERN PROVINCES OF INDIA.

BY

CHARLES RAIKES

JUDGE OF THE SUDDER COURT AT AGRA :
LATE CIVIL COMMISSIONER WITH SIR COLIN CAMPBELL:

AUTHOR OF "NOTES ON THE NORTH-WESTERN PROVINCES OF INDIA.

LONDON

LONGMAN, BROWN, GREEN, LONGMANS, & ROBERTS.

HENRY MORSE EHENS

[ocr errors]

The Author of the following Notes has only very recently returned from India. He has observed the anxiety on the part of the educated portion of his countrymen to acquire authentic information as to the present feelings and past conduct of the people of India; and has thought it right to place before the public an account, however hurried and imperfect, of his observations during the past year.

Having no personal adventures to recount, the writer's apology for relating his own history is his desire to support the opinions advanced in the concluding chapters of this book. For it is only from a recital of facts that we can gather material for our future conduct; and in these days any honest narrator of the Indian history of his day may hope for the indulgence of the public.

London : July, 1858.
