Letter from Henry Thomas Colebrooke to Nathaniel Wallich, 21 February 1826

Scope and Content

Letter from Henry Thomas Colebrooke to Nathaniel Wallich in which Colebrooke thanks Wallich for his report on his journey to the Tipoo forests. He would be glad to see maps that Wallich has promised and the map that should have accompanied Gerard's Journal has not arrived at India House. This Journal has furnished a paper for the Transactions of the Royal Asiatic Society. He has yet to see Wallich's Tentamen Florae Nepalensis and will happily receive a copy from Wallich. He reassures Wallich concerning his reputation but adds that nothing, as yet, has happened at India House concerning appointment of an assistant. He discusses furlough and provision of publications. Handwritten, dated 21 February 1826, received 28 June 1826.
