OK, THANKS... I WILL ASK A PAID BL INDIA OFFICE PRIVATE RESEARCHER TO SEE IF
THERE ARE ANY SURVIVING PAYMASTER RECORDS FOR 'WIVES ALLOWANCE'FOR
POONA,1826-35 (AND OTHER QUESTIONS - MAYBE I'LL JOIN FIBIS!).
THE BOOK ONLY HAS FN'S RELATING TO THE MIL LETTERS/PAPERS INITIATING THE
ALLOWANCE IN 1825, ETC - NOT ANY PAYMENT RECORDS.
