TitleLetter from Thompson to Norton: 3 April 1819: Madras
Extent1 doc.
DescriptionHas heard with surprise and regret that Norton has not yet given up his judgeship; has heard nothing from Munro supporting Norton's continuing as judge, while Corresponding Committees of Madras and Calcutta and the Secretaries in London have expressly written against it; the bishop of Calcutta also agrees with the committees, as does the new Resident, Major McDowell; the question of the judgeship has now been brought before the governor in council and would have had the most injurious results had Thompson not explained that it was contrary to the wishes of the Society; "you have, by your unaccountable pertinacity brought the Travancore missions into the greatest peril"; if such an occurrence happens again the committee will disconnect the missionary and report it to government; Norton should at once write to be relieved of the office or the arrival of Major McDouall "will displace you" [copy].
