    • Bangalore, July 30 1857. Leaving for Madras, thence to Calcutta, as Governor General has accepted the offer of a Force from Madras Residency ? Leaves his wife Henrietta in perfect safety. Conduct. of troops in Hyderabad, Nagpur and Madras leaves him quite confident. Loss of Sir Henry Lawrence felt badly. Massacre of Cawnpore known, Nana Sahib defeated.
    • Arcot, August 26 1857. Regiment refused to proceed on the pay. Returned to dismount duty in Arcot.
    • Arcot, September 9 1857. Going to Vellore next day, on pleasure to join Managing Engineer who is taking 'a run down the line from Madras' by train, and asks Fowler to join him at Arcot.

China troops landed in Calcutta and small numbers from Mauritius and the Cape. No progress. Madras fusiliers at Cawnpore awaiting for General Outram's force before moving on to Lucknow. England is told it is a purely military revolt. Feels great shame that his regiment only has defaulted.
    • Arcot, October 11 1857. Removal of an objectionable officer by the Company. Fowler gets majority. Report that Delhi has fallen, and Lucknow returned.
