[...] And from the officers so detached the accounts which reached us of the diaffection of the soldiery particularly of the 60th N. I. and the alarm manifested by them at the introduction of the new fire-arms were nowise calculated to allay the apprehension which had been aroused in Bengal. [...] Between the native lines and the parade ground stood the bells of arms each containing the arms of one company ; one building larger than the rest on the right of the bells of arms being the regimental magazine. [...] The women were placed in the tykhana or undeground story of the Residency the sick in the Banqueting Hall and the men were distributed partly in the lowest story of the Residency and in the Banqueting Hall from the plateau of which they looked down directly on the heads of the sepoy guards below. [...] The high road skirted the whole length of the position and followed the level of the ground which rose naturally from the lowest eastern plateau to that of the highest on the west side.
