nawab Singha, who was deprived of his estates, was reckoned the fortieth chief of his race.
His sister came to him, and the nawab kindly explained what they would have to do.
General Raper was the officer in political charge of the nawab of Moorshedabad, then a boy of some ten years old.
He did not like the manner with which the nawab regarded his sister.
About 1736 the district fell into the hands of the nawab of the Carnatic, and the line of the Nayaks was extinguished.
The task of chastising the nawab was at once made over to him.
The nawab had demanded their signatures to a document binding the English at Calcutta to demolish their fortifications.
But the nawab himself was environed with dangers of all kinds.
In return, the nawab was bound over to pay a yearly tribute to the Great Mogul of a quarter of a million sterling.
The nawab has made his submission, and we have nothing to do but receive it and move on.
