A.G. of the 10th November, writes thus:-Is not a rumour current that village officers decline to continue holding their appointments, as they are required to provide supplies to every visitor? It is but fair that supplies should be made to, and their value recovered from, those that go to villages on public duty. If it is so done, there is no doubt that it will be pleasing to all. Is it not true that sometimes it so happens that the village officers do not get the cost of things so supplied? Is it not true that something more than the sist is collected from the ryots in order to make up the losses they (the village officers) incur?

"Would not the government get angry if one says that wrongs are perpetrated in its administration? If it wants proof for every piece of information can we, poor people, afford to give it? It is generally difficult to prove what is true. All the abuses are known to such persons as more familiarly among the people with their ears and eyes open. But though they are aware, what can those starving people do?
