An address to the Proprietors of East India stock; setting forth the unavoidable necessity and real motives for the Revolution in Bengal, in 1760. By John Zephaniah Holwell, Esq.
To Mr. Warren Hastings
By express yesterday from Dacca we have advice, that the Suba has taken off Allyverdee and Shaw Amet Khan's Begums.—He sent a Jemmaut-daar and 100 horse, with orders to Jesseraut Khan to carry this bloody scheme into execution, with separate orders to the Jemmaut-daar, in case Jesseraut Khan refused obedience: he refused acting any part in the tragedy, and left it to the other; who carried them out by night about two miles above the city in a boat, tied weights to their legs, and threw them over-board; they struggled for some time, and held by the gunwall of the boat, but by strokes on their heads with Latties, and cutting off their hands, they sunk.— These are the acts of the Tyger we are supporting and fighting for.
Your obedient humble servant,
J. Z. H.
