Rare important diplomatic exchange between India and England in the midst of the Seven Years' War. The present Portuguese publication transcribes diplomatic letters sent by the Great Mughal Emperor of India to King George II of England in 1757. In that year the British had seized control of Bengal, concluding the Bengal War. This diplomatic exchange was important for the Portuguese because they were allied with the British and had a significant presence in India.
