On This Day: 15 May 1687

In reply to yesterday’s letter to the East India Company at Cuddalore, Christopher Wilson (a member of the Company’s Council there) wrote to Bowrey. He hoped that the letter would provide some comfort although it probably fell short of that.

Wilson was concerned that obtaining satisfaction for Bowrey would endanger his own life but he sympathised about what was happening to a fellow Englishman. He recommended patience. He hoped that Bowrey would be released the next day although he feared that it may require Bowrey to give them something so that they can save face.

He finished by adding that, if Bowrey is not released, Wilson will do his best to provide him with any things he made need whilst imprisoned.
