and I had the »atisfaction of seeing the whole of the baggage out of the pass without a single thing having been obtained by them; and on the arrival of Lieutenant-Colonel Richmond with the rear guard, I resigned the position to him and marched on to protect the baggage, which had then become placed between the advance and the main column.

Lieutenant-Colonel Richmond, who had been directed by me to remain in position for a quarter of an hour after my departure with the rear guard, consisting of six hundred and nineteen rank and. file and two guns, reports that on his withdrawal, the enemy, to the extent of about six hundred men, came forward in a very determined manner and followed him up for a considerable distance, although frequently driven back by the fire of the troops and guns.

Enclosed I beg to transmit a return of killed and wounded, and ammunition expended in the main column and rear guard during the day.

Camp, Gundamuck, October 20, 1842.

SIR,

I HAVE the honour of transmitting a report of the occurrences which took place with that portion of the force under my command, in the Jugdulluck pass, on the 18th instant.

As from what I have learnt, I have reason to think, that the reports of the former march from Soorkhab to Tezeen, when the casualties of the force amounted to sixty-two, have not been forwarded to Government; and as I consider it very desirable it should be on record, that the toils, dangers, and deserts of my brigade have not been in any degree less than those of the other portions of the army, I have to request, that Major-General M'Caskill will be good enough to express to Major-General Pollock my wish, that my three reports may be forwarded for the information of the GovernorGeneral.
