Mushirul Hasan

Oxford University Press

The author gives an account of his and his family's origin, and narrates his journey to join his father at Moorshedabad. He also tells of his father's death, and the death of the Nabob Shujaa ad Dowleh, who was succeeded by his son, Assuf ad Dowleh, whose minister invited the author to return to Lucknow. The author was consulted by the English on the state of affairs, and was appointed to reduce Rajah Bulbudder Sing. He also describes the enmity of the minister, Hyder Beg Khan, and his travel to Calcutta. He was recommended by Lord Cornwallis to the British Resident, and to the Nabob, at Lucknow. Lord Cornwallis left India. The Nabob quarrelled with the Resident and dismissed the author, who returned to Calcutta. Being unhappy, he was invited to make a voyage to Europe.
