Memorandum from the Commissioner in Sind no. 249 dated 23 February 1869, refers to Government Resolution No. 1733 of 16 September 1868, and encloses photographs of tombs in Sind taken by Leggett. Government Resolution of 23 March (No. 748) 1869 noted:
‘Government [of Bombay] will be glad to receive from Mr Leggett the negatives of the photographs marked Nos. 6,7,8,10,11,12 in the list forwarded by the Commissioner in Sind. They should be carefully packed and sent to the Secretariat, with a memorandum giving a brief account of the buildings, their situation, and supposed date of construction...The prints of Nos. 2,3,4,14,15,18 and 19, have also been retained by Government; the remainder are returned to the Commissioner, and he is requested to determine the amount of renumeration which should be given to Mr Leggett.’ [1]
