Publication details: 
[Hyderabad, Inda.] Written c. 1879 [1263 Fuslee'], the twenty-fifth year of Jung's administration, with the latest date reference in text '1874/5 (corresponding with 1284 Fuslee)'. On paper watermarked 1873 and 1874.

Three items: the full article, the beginning of an earlier draft, and an annotated table. All in good condition, on lightly-aged paper. Unusually, the article is not written from a British point of view, but rather in praise Jung's achievements from within Hyderabad itself (the author refers to 'the results we have here obtained'). Despite complaining of what he calls the 'scant records have come down to us', the author is able to present his case with a deal of economic information.
