Letter from the Assistant Commissioner, Sind to Government of Bombay, dated 29th May 1867, ‘submitting, for instructions, a letter from Mr J. A. Jung, Photographer, Kurrachee, tendering his services for taking photographs of the various races of Sind’.

‘Memorandum from the Assistant Commissioner in charge, Sind, No. 544, dated 29th May 1867 - Submitting, for instructions, a letter from Mr. J. A. Jung, Photographer, Kurrachee, tendering his services for taking photographs of the various races of Sind, and suggesting that, should Government approve, Mr. Jung may be asked on what terms he will undertake the work.

RESOLUTION. - The Commissioner in Sind should be informed that it does not appear necessary at present to take a fresh set of photographs of the people of Sind.
2. His attention should be drawn to the former proceedings of 1862, when Captain Houghton and Captain Tanner prepared a very complete set of Sind Photographs, and he should be requested to state if any sets of these have been preserved in Sind, and, if so, whether he can supply two sets, one for the Bombay Branch of the Royal Asiatic Society, and one for the University Library.'[3]
