KURRACHEE [KARACHI] PAKISTAN 1865 Good English 
On offer is a super handwritten manuscript 1865 diary of a Major [George Lynedoch] Carmichael [Smythe], [b. December 8, 1831 - d. January 29, 1903], of the 95th Regiment of Foot [Derbyshire] serving in Kurrachee [Karachi, Pakistan] as evidence by the holograph entry to the calendar at the front. A slip of ephemera being a loose slip relating to "Major Carmichael, 95th Regiment" being further confirmation. This is an amazing relic of British Colonial times at a superbly interesting time in Pakistan for an Officer of the famed Regiment. Various manuscript entries largely of a financial nature eg "Paid Fatigue Party for Porter - £2-1", "Drew for Company Pds. 400" but a number of other notes including an alphabet translation of an unidentified language but most probably local to Karachi and one particular section full page section written in another language we are not able to decipher.
