Minute by Sir T.S. Raffles on the establishment of a Malay College at Singapore

In this document, Sir Stamford Raffles puts forth his case for the establishment of an educational college in Singapore to serve the native population of the Malay Archipelago, arguing that "it should be our care that while with one hand we carry to their shores the capital of our merchants, the other should be stretched forth to offer them the means of intellectual improvement."
