Excerpt from Debates at the India House: August 22nd, 23rd, and September 24th, 1845, on the Case of the Deposed Raja of Sattara, and the Impeachment of Col. C. Ovans, With Historical Notes, and a Sketch of Previous Proceedings at the India House

Pretaub Shean, ex-Raja of Sattara, is descended from Sivajee, the celebrated founder of the Mahratta empire, which grew out of the ruins of the vast Mahomedan power which, in the reign of Aurungzib, in the early part of the last century, gave laws through the greater part of India, Scinde, the Punjab, and a portion of Afghanistan. Sivajee was a Rajpoot, and related to the family of the Rana (or King) of Odeypoor, the most noble and ancient of all the Rajpoot chiefs.

The efforts made by the Mahrattas under Sivajee to wrest from the Mahomedans the country that had been previously conquered from the Hindus, had been arrested by Aurungzib. Sivajee was dead; his eldest son, Sambajee, had been ignominiously put to death by the emperor, and Sivajee's grandson, Sahoojee, with his family, remained a captive in the hands of the Mahomedans.

The intestine feuds that arose among the sons of Aurungzib after his death were favourable to the enemies of the Mahomedans; but there were circumstances, at the moment, which rendered it politic to release Sahoojee from his captivity, and to allow him to recover, if possible, the territory his grandfather had conquered and lost; on condition that he should consent to retain the military office assigned to him in the service of the emperor of Delhi. It was not without some difficulty that Sahoojee obtained the recognition and allegiance of his subjects. Being, however, once established on the throne, he gave himself up to the amusements of the field, leaving the hard labour of recovering his grandfather's conquests, and of making encroachments on the Mahomedans wherever opportunity afforded, to his military chiefs. The direction of this difficult task was undertaken by his prime minister, under the title of Peshwa, who during his sovereign's life ruled the Mahratta dominions.
