Some information having been obtained from Sir Barrow Ellis regarding the Beni Israel, a community of Jews settled in India, the Secretary addressed himself to Mr. GrUmput Survotum Manlcar, a Hindoo gentleman of great intelligence, who promised to transmit any communications which this Association might be disposed to make to the leading members of the Beni Israel. A series of questions was accordingly prepared, and was forwarded by Mr. Mankar.
