Excerpt from The Life and Opinions of General Sir Charles James Napier, Vol. 3 of 4: G. C. B The Governor of Scinde now hoped to push the country rapidly forward to prosperity, but a terrible enemy interposed: pestilence suddenly blighted the growth of civilization. It came with sweeping force, striking down the collectors and their subordinates and paralyzing the whole action of the executive. Revenue sunk, cultivation nearly ceased, the public works were arrested for want of hands, and the troops went down like com before a driving blast: there was not a hundred men or officers able to stand in arms! The mortality was not indeed great, but lassitude, and despondency inexpressible, bowed mind and body, and suicides were frequent. In this helpless state dangers arose on every side. The mountain Belooch tribes, some of which had before commenced marauding, suddenly became menacing; the Punjaub troubles were augmenting on the frontier, and in India the powerful state of Gwalior was openly provoking war.
