No. 12.-DEFINITIVE TREATY with Dowlut Rau Scindia.
Mustafapoor, 22nd November, 1805.
English East India Company, and the Maha Rajah Ali Jah Doulut
Whereas various doubts and misunderstandings have arisen respecting the clear Meaning and Interpretation of parts of the Treaty of Peace concluded between the British Government and Dowlut Rao Scindia, at Serjee Anjengaum, on the 30th December, 1803; with a view of doing away all such Doubts, and of preventing the recurrence in future of any Misunderstandiog, this Definitive Treaty of Amity and Alliance is concluded between the 2 States, by Lieutenant-Colonel John Malcolm, acting under the immediate direction and superintend. ence of the Right Honourable General Gerard Lake, Commander-inChief of His Majesty's and the Honourable Company's Forces, &c. &c. &c., and vested with Full Powers and Authority from the Honourable Sir George Hilaro Barlow, Baronet, appointed by the Honourable
Court of Directors of the said Company to control and direct all their Affairs in the East Indies; and Moonshee Kavil Nyne, vested with Full Powers and Authority on the part of the said Maha Rajah Dowlut Rao Scindia.
Art. I. Every part of the Treaty of Peace concluded by General Sir Arthur Wellesley, K.B. at Serjee Anjengaum, except what may be altered by this Engagement, is to remain binding upon the 2 States.
II. The Honourable Company can never acknowledge that Dowlut Rao Scindia has any claim or right, grounded on the Treaty of Serjee Anjengaum, to possess the Fort of Gualior, or the Territories of Gohud; but, from considerations of friendship, it agrees to cede to the Maha Rajah that Fortress, and such parts of the Territory of Gohud as are described in the accompanying Schedule.
III. As a compensation for this cession, and to remunerate the English Government for the annual expence incurred in supporting the Ranah of Gohud, Dowlut Rao Scindia agrees, on his own part, and that of his Sirdars, to relinquish, after the 1st January, 1806, all right and claim whatever to the Pensions of 15 lacks of rupees granted to several of the Chief Officers of his State, by the VIlth Article of the aforesaid Treaty of Serjee Anjengaum.
IV. The Honourable Company agree to pay to Dowlut Rao Scindia the Arrears due upon the Pensions granted by the VIlth Article of the Treaty of Peace, as above-mentioned, up to the 31st December, 1805, and also the Balance due upon the revenues of Dholepoor, Rajah Kerrah, and Baree, up to the same date, making deductions on the following heads :
1. Pensions forfeited by Bappoo Scindia and Sudashes Rao, by acts of hostility towards the British Government, to be stopped from the date of their hostility.
2. Plunder of the British Residency.
3. Cash advanced by Mr. Jenkins to Parties of the Maha Rajalı’s Troops.
4. Charges of Collection, &c. for the Provinces of Dholepoor, Baree, and Rajah Kerrah.
V. With a view of preventing any misunderstanding relating to their respective Possessions on the quarter of Hindostan, it is agreed that the River Chumbul shall form the Boundary between the 2 States, from the City of Cottah to the West, to the limits of the Territories of Gobud to the East; and within that extent of the course of the Chumbul, Dowlut Rao Scindia shall have no claim or right to any rule, tribute, revenue, or possessions on its North Bank; and the Honourable Company shall have no claim or right to any rule, tribute, revenues, or possessions on the South Bank of that River. The Talooks of Bhadek and Sooseperarah, which are on the banks of the Jumpa, will, however, remain in possession of the Honourable Company.
VI. By the Vth Article of this Treaty, which makes the River Chumbul the Boundary of the 2 States, from the City of Cottah to the west, to the limits of the Territories of Gohud to the east, the Maha Rajah resigns all pretensions and claims to any Tribute from the Rajah of Boondee, or any other on the North Bank of the Chumbul, within the afore-mentioned limits, as also to the Countries of Tank Rampoorah, Bahraungaum, Zemeidab, &c., and to the Districts of Dholepoor, Rajah Kerrah, and Baree, all which remain in the possession of the Honourable Company.
VII. The Honourable Company, in consideration of the benefits derived froin the Article, which makes the Chumbul the Boundary between the 2 States, and from friendship to the Maha Rajah, agree to grant to him, personally and exclusively, the annual sum of 4 lacks of rupees, to be paid by quarterly instalments, through the Resident at the Durbar; and the Honourable Company also agree to assign, within their Territories in Hindostan, a jaggeer, (to be holdeu on the same footing as that enjoyed by Ballah Bhye,) amounting to a revenue of 2 lacks of rupees per annum, to Bauzah Bhye, the wife of Dowlut Rao Scindia, and a jaggeer, amounting to the sum of 1 lack of rupees per annum, to Chummah Bhye, the Daughter of that Chief.
VIII. The Honourable Company engage to enter into no Treaty with the Rajahs of Oudeepore and Joudpore, and Kottah, or other Chiefs, Tributaries of Dowlut Rao Scindia, situated in Malwa, Mewar or Marwar, and in no shape whatever to interfere with the Settlement which Scindia may make with those Chiefs.
IX. The Honourable Company are now engaged in a war with Jeswunt Rao Holkar, and using every exertion for his reduction; hut should they hereafter make a Peace, or enter into any Agreement with that Chief, they engage not to restore to him, or desire to be restored to him, any of the possessions of the Family of Holkar, in the Province of Malwa, lying between the Rivers Tapti and Chumbul, which may have been taken by Dowlut Rao Scindia; nor will the Honourable Company interfere, in any manner whatever, in the disposal of those Provinces; and they will consider Dowlut Rao Scindia at full liberty to make such arrangement as he chooses with Jeswunt Rao Holkar, or with any other branch of the Holkar Family, respecting the claims of that l'amily to Tribute from the Rajahs or others, or to any Possessions situated to the North of the River Tapti, and to the South of the River Chumbul. But it is clearly to be understood that, as the Company's Government agrees not to concern itself with the Arrangements which Scindia may make with the Family of Holkar, respecting their claims or hereditary Possessions situated between the Tapti and the Chumbul, that Government will not take part in any dispute or
War which may be the result or consequence of such Arrangement or settlement.
X. As Serjee Rao Ghaultka has acted in a manner calculated to disturb the Friendship between the 2 States, the Maha Rajah agrees never to admit that Chief to share in his Councils, or to hold any public employment under his Government.
XI. This Treaty, consisting of 11 Articles, has been this day settled by Lieutenant Colonel Malcolm, acting under the directions of the Right Honourable Lord Lake, on the part of the Honourable Company, and by Moonshee Kavil Nyne, on the part of Dowlut Rao Scindia. Lieutenant Colonel John Malcolm has delivered one Copy thereof, in Persian and English, Signed and Sealed by himself, to the said Moonshee Kavil Nyne, to be forwarded to the Maha Rajah Dowlut Rao Scindia, and has received from the said Moonshee Kavil Nyne a Counterpart of the said Treaty, Signed and Sealed by the said Moonshee. Lieutenant Colonel John Malcolm engages, that a Copy of the said Treaty, ratified by the Honourable the Governor General, in every respect a Counterpart of the Treaty now executed by himself, shall be delivered to Moonshee Kavil Nyne, to be forwarded to the Maha Rajah, within the period of one month from this date; and, on the delivery of such Copy to the Maha Rajah, the Treaty executed by Lieutenant Colonel John Malcolm, under the immediate direction of the Right Honourable Lord Lake, shall be returned; and Moonshee Kavil Nyne like manner engages, that another Copy of the said Treaty, ratified by the Maha Rajah Ali Jah Dowlut Rao Scindia, in every respect a Counterpart of the Treaty now executed by himself, shall be delivered to Lieutenant Colonel John Malcolm, to be forwarded to the Honourable the Governor General, within the period of one month from this date; and, on the delivery of such Copy to the Honourable the Governor General, the Treaty executed by Moonshee Kavi] Nyne, by virtue of the Full Powers and authority vested in him, as above-mentioned, shall also be returned.
Done at Mustafapoor, this 22d day of November, Anno Domini 1805, or 29th Shuban, in the year of the Higera 1220.
