Secret resolutions of the Dutch Political Council prior to the capitulation of Colombo to thr British. Copies .
1796 February 14 and 15
 
These are copies, apparently made during the British period. The following note appears on the last page of file no. 1/761: “The secret resolution in Council of the 14th February 1796 annexed to this was taken out, bound, and sent to Mr. Lee – 18th July 1833”. These originals are now missing; so this file, containing copies of the minutes is placed with the series of original Council minutes in order to complete the series, although they really belong to the Archives of the British administration in Ceylon. Added from Appendix II. Addenda (1973).
