Condition: See description


[India] 14 May 1874. 3 pp. 8 x 5 inches, fold, in good condition, traces of fomrer mounting. Marked Private. Another move in the Great Game, checking Russia’s ambitions in South Asia. “Still no news of civil war in Afghanistan.” Thomas George Baring, 2nd Baron Northbrook (1826-1904), Governor General of India (1872-76), First Lord of the Admiralty (1880-1885). “... Mr. Forsyth, although unable to return himself via Wakhan & Badakshan has managed to effect our object of obtaining better information as to Sirikot and its neighbourhood by pushing on a party there. The information seems to me to be satisfactory as it shows that Wokhan marches with Kashgar, and that there is not debatable land between.”
