Opis: The Life of Thomas Pitt (Classic Reprint) - Dalton Cornelius Neale

Excerpt from The Life of Thomas Pitt

Thomas Pitt, grandfather of the great Earl of Chatham and owner of the famous Pitt diamond, was appointed Governor of Fort St George at a very critical time, when the East India Company, after carrying on a lucrative trade in India for nearly a century, had found themselves in a very dangerous position. Some eight years before, during their disastrous war with the Mogul, they had been deprived of their prosperous factories at Dacca, Patna, and Hugli; and the only foothold left to them in Bengal on the conclusion of an ignominious peace was a settlement newly founded in the face of great difficulties and sacrifice of life on a part of the present site of Calcutta. At home their Royal Charter, which purported to give them the monopoly of the Eastern trade, had become practically a dead letter by a resolution of the House of Commons, which had declared that "all subjects of England had an equal right to trade to the East Indies unless prohibited by Act of Parliament."
