Para, 20, in our military letter to Bombay, of the 10th April 1434, (No 13) Para. 5. We stated, that we would convey to you our reply to the memorial of Major Moore, the deputy military auditor general at that presidency, relating to his claim to su perior house rent or regimental tentage, and we take the present opportunity of fulfilling that intention.

21 We learn from that memorial and its accompanying proceedings that three different systems obtain in respect to the house rent or house-reut and tentage, of the staff officers station. ed at the capitals of each of the three presidencies, Those sta tioned at Madras draw regimental tentage and regimental bouse. rent, whilst those at Galcutta and Bombay draw no tentage but these at Calcutta receive a superior rate of house rent, and those at Bombay drow house-reut according to regimentai rank.

22, The Bengal system was established on the principle of giving to stail officers at the presidency house rent exceeding by 50 per cent. the rates previously drawn by them. This pria clule received our sanction, and we now diruct that it be extend. ed to the staff ollicers stationed, at the capitals of the three pre

sidencies.
