TitleLetter from Sir Robert Brownrigg to the President [Lord Gambier]: 25 June 1818: Kandy
Extent1 doc.
Date1818
DescriptionHas been in Kandy for several months because of the insurrection in the interior; presence of clergyman in Kandy is highly desirable; since the appointment of an archdeacon the three chaplains are occupied elsewhere; has hitherto been unwilling to allow a missionary into Kandyan territories because of jealousy of powerful Buddhist priests; now proposes that Lambrick might be stationed in Kandy.
