The History and Management of the East-India Company, from Its Origin in 1600 to the Present Time
Excerpt from The History and Management of the East-India Company, From Its Origin in 1600 to the Present Time:, Containing the Affairs of the Carnatic, in Which the Rights of the Nabob Are Explained, and the Injustice of the Company Proved The Court of East-India Directors, having, perhaps industriously, involved the affairs of the Carnatic in obscurity, by their voluminous Defence, the Author of the following Work found himself obliged to deduce his accounts, from an early period of time. To extricate the subject from difficulty, he has connected the controversial part of the discussion, with an authentic and impartial narrative of the most important transactions, on the coast of Coromandel. His arguments and reasoning are only such, as naturally result from his facts; and his facts are founded upon the most incontrovertible evidence, to which the Reader is referred, at the bottom of every page. The Directors, in the volumes of Original Papers, published under their inspection, have furnished the Author, with authentic materials, sufficient to overset entirely the system, which they wished to defend. He has also availed himself of the information of other papers of Equal Authority, which a Gentleman employed by the Crown, for some years, in a public capacity on the Coast, was pleased to place in his hand. Private papers and documents, together with written evidences of a Private nature, which unveil the springs of many measures, have come into his possession.
