He was met by the mayor and corpora- tion, who presented him with an address.

It affords me the greatest interest and plea- sure to carry out my long-cherished desire to see this country, with which the family of my master, his Highness the Nizam, has been so closely connected during the pwt century.

You have alluded to the recent visit of his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales to India, and I mint ask your per- mission to add my assurance to your conviction on this subject, namely, that England and India are thereby knitted closer together in bonds of unity and peace. The opportunity offered to the princes and nobles of the native States to do honour to the Heir Apparent to the British Throne has been gladly and faithfully accepted wherever it was possible; and I can affirm the result ii that this Royal visit has very materially strengthened the affection and developed the local feelings of the native princes and people of India to the British Crown and to the Empress of India, and I shall ever pray lor the prosperity of Great Britain and her Inaian Empire."
