Quote about Maratha empire by Charles Metcalfe


Source - Maratha empire - https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maratha_Empire

Charles Metcalfe, one of the ablest of the British Officials in India and later acting Governor-General, wrote in 1806:

India contains no more than two great powers, British and Mahratta, and every other state acknowledges the influence of one or the other. Every inch that we recede will be occupied by them
