  • Contents and Scope:
    Contents: Dated at Fort Marlborough, Sumatra, reporting upon the situation of that island, its products, peoples and the work and behaviour of Company Servants posted there. The report also addresses the proposed means of obtaining the best return on the Company's investment there and criticises the basis upon which the initial recommendations were made.

    Note: The report was made in response to a hostile memorial made to the Company by Mr Edward Coles on the same date, which may be found in IOR/G/35/17. It seems likely that the original of this document should also be in the same series. The text contains several alterations to individual words, although these are not major changes, this may be a late draft.
