HC Deb 11 July 1873 vol 217 c210

asked the Under Secretary of State for India, Whether it is the fact that the Commander-in-Chief in India dismissed from the station of Mein Mico in the Presidency of Bengal, Mr. Sandwell, a scripture reader, for the offence of lending to a soldier a pamphlet entitled "The Underground Railway to Rome," such pamphlet having been furnished to the said scripture reader by the Protestant chaplain of the station? He could assure the hon. Gentleman he had the information on the best authority.


Sir, no information, official or unofficial, has reached the India Office with regard to the matter alluded to in the Question of the hon. Gentleman.
