Carlo J. Doyle (b. 1787), British army officer in Calcutta, India, writes to Sir William Rumbold (1787-1833), third baronet, about plans to return to London, England. Doyle also encloses bills (not included) that Lord Hastings (1754-1826) took care of in Rumbold's absence to keep Rush Moore from going to jail.
