      LORD CORNWALLIS A LARGE HEARTED AND GENEROUS MAN COMPARED TO GENERAL HARRIS AT SERINGAPATTAM 1799 AND LORD COMBERMERE AT BHURTPORE 1826 TWO GREEDY COMMANDERS

LORD CORNWALLIS WAS GENEROUS IN EVERY WAY WITH FRIEND OR FOE- HE WAS FIRST BRITISH COMMANDER TO DEFEAT MYSORE WHICH HAD DEFIED THE COMPANY IN TWO PREVIOUS WARS-HE GAVE TIPOO SAHIB VERY GENEROUS TERMS AND WAS MUCH
CRITICISED-

WITH BRITISH AND INDIAN TROOPS ALSO LORD CORNWALLIS WAS GENEROUS TO THE EXTREME-THUS AT THE SUCCESSFUL SURRENDER OF TIPOO SAHIB AT SERINGAPATTAM IN 1792 LORD
CORNWALLIS AND GENERAL MEADOWS DID NOT ACCEPT THEIR SHARE IN PRIZE MONEY WHICH WAS HUGE ! THEY GAVE IT TO THEIR NCOS AND OTHER RANKS !

WHEREAS LORD HARRIS AT SERINGAPATTAM IN 1799 DID NOT FOREGO HIS SHARE AND SAME WAS CASE WITH GREEDY LORD COMBERMERE AT BHURTPORE IN 1826-THUS THE LOWER RANKS GOT A PITTANCE.
