TitleLetter from Fenn to [Strachan]: 1 March 1819: Cottayam via Alleppie
Extent1 doc.
DescriptionHeads of the Catholics are "doing their utmost" and "the governors of Goa, Verapoly, Cranganore, Cochin and Quilon are doing all they can to raise a ferment" and are calling on the British families to interfere; the Roman Catholics have occupied Changanacherry Church; two Romo-Syrian catanars and about 700 Christians desire to reunite with the Syrians.
27 Feb 8pm: Quilon: Robert Gordon to Fenn
Matters have gone too far to disregard the edict and will take means tomorrow to enforce it; regrets what has happened; Fenn must send moderate catanar to reoccupy Changanacherry church without violence
1 Mar 1819: Fenn to [Captain Gordon]
Will try to find a catanar to go to Changanacherry but is afraid to risk censure of government by going with them; the Syrians are quite content to leave decisions in the affair entirely to government [copy]
