Name : Jay Underwood
Subject: Bank of Hindustan
Message : Your website says the Bank of Hindustan was set up in 1870, yet I have a prospectus from the International Contract Co. of London, UK from 1862 which shows D.J. Hoare, a director of the Bank of Hindustan, as a director of this company also.

My interest is in the biography of Hoare, since the International Contract Co. played a key role in the construction of the Intercolonial Railway of Canada (1864-1876) which is my primary area of interest.

If anyone has information on D.J. Hoare, I would very much like to hear from them.
