Excerpt: ...letter which Sri Durga Madhobo Singho Deu, zamindar of the taluks of Bodogodo and Serogodo writes, is as follows: Both my estates are covered with forest, and tigers, bears, and other wild beasts constantly 'inhabit it. If therefore my peons go about without guns, swords, bows and arrows, etcetera, whether when with me, or when going about amongst the villages, it will be exceedingly dangerous for these people.

Besides, when I go into the Maliahs, if they do not carry arms, it will be impossible to get on. It is for this reason that when your honour was on your way to the Maliahs, I made the fact known to you at Surada.
