Excerpt from Letter to the Honourable the Directors of the East-India Company Gentlemen, It is now near eighteen months since I had the honour of addressing to you any request or application in behalf of my Brother, Colonel Stuart, who for some time past has been Brigadier-general in the Service of the Honourable East India Company. I have at all times thought it my duty to abstain from giving you unnecessary trouble, and though frequently urged to represent to you the peculiar hardships of my Brother's case, it appeared to me more suitable to refrain from any remonstrances, until we should know here the event of his trial by a Court-martial, for which orders were sent to India, by the Company's general letter of the 4th of July, 1777. But the dispatches recently received from Madras, which contain an account of what has passed there, in relation to the proposed Court-martial, put me under the unavoidable necessity of immediately soliciting your attention to the peculiarity of my Brother's situation. Without partiality or prejudice, I may venture to say, that the circumstances of his case, when deliberately and candidly considered, will be found worthy of your most serious attention; and, I trust will call aloud for some immediate redress, to stop the further progress of the accumulated severities, hardships, and indignities, which appear to me to have been inflicted on Colonel Stuart, a person succeeding, by your own appointment, to be Commander in Chief of your army in the Carnatic.
