At the request of the Native community, he prepared Addresses in the English, Bengali, and Persian languages, on the occasion of the departure of the Hon’ble Sir E. H. East, Kt., late Chief Justice, and the Most Noble the Marquis of Hastings, late Governor General, and read them before those gentlemen. He transmitted to the Oriental Literary Society, through one of its members, his remarks on Happiness, etc. and received their thanks for the same. His first correspondence was published in the Transactions of the Royal Asiatic Society of Great Britain and Ireland, volume 2nd, Appendix, pages 46, 61 and 63, Note 4 and 5. His accounts of the agriculture of the 24-Parganas, etc., were among several useful papers contributed by him, inserted in the Transactions of the Agricultural and Horticultural Society of India, Volume 1, pp. 48 and 62, and Volume 2nd, Part 1st, page 1, and his two letters on Native Inoculation and Small-pox, were subjoined to Dr. Cameron's Report on the present state of Vaccine Inoculation in Bengal. In 1822 he, at the desire of Mr. H. T. Prinsep, the late Persian Secretary, furnished him with the accounts of all respectable and opulent Natives of the Presidency. Sir E. H. East, Kt., and Sir C. E. Grey, Kt., late Chief Justices of the Supreme Court of Calcutta, were at the ಟ್ವme of their departure to England, pleased to favour Radhakanta Deb with two kind letters, of which copies are also annexed.
