Letter from Richard Clarke to James Cosmo Melvill, 1 July 1854

Scope and Content

Letter from Richard Clarke, Secretary, to James Cosmo Melvill, Secretary, East India Company, in which the Council asks for permission from the East India Company to print the memoirs of Captain Felix Jones to accompany his map of the site of ancient Ninevah which is being engraved for the East India Company. The Royal Asiatic Society would supply copies to the East India Company and in return would like copies of the engraved map. The 'package' of memoir and map would be available for members and general circulation. This package in conjunction with 'the labour of Col. Rawlinson' is thought to be of real interest.
