Transcript 8 EXPLANATION OF THE PLATES. in this plate; when the sun shone upon the blue and yellow divisions of its body, the richness baffled all attempts at imitation. The Neva tree, when covered with its pensile blossoms, is one of the most elegant vegetable productions in Hindostan. XX. ./* Surat, on the Banks of the Tappee. The engraving represents this celebrated city in the most interesting point of view, from the English factory to the Dutch bunder, taken on the opposite side of the river. In the centre is the castle, with the British and Mogul .colours on the towers; the more distant flag surmounts the Portuguese factory. XXL The Conclusion of a Cheeta-hunt at Cambay. The drawing for this engraving was made by Lady Malet, from a picture painted in water-colours, by a native of India, taken on the spot, which, although deficient in keeping and perspective, exactly describes the scene intended : it represents the Cheeta growling over the antelope he has just killed in the chase, and the gamekeeper cutting off the haunch to give the hungry animal to redeem the rest of his prey. Sir Charles Malet and some of his Persian friends at Cambay are spectators. One of the attendants carries a hawk, trained for the chase of antelopes and other game, which formed a principal amusement at Cambay. XXII. The Mango. The Mango, (Mangifero Indica, Lin.) so deservedly esteemed one of the greatest blessings in India, abounds in most parts of its extensive dominions. It is a fruit frequently mentioned in the Memoirs, as differing in form, colour, and flavour, more than usual in oriental orchards, and far exceeding the variety of apples in Europe. The Alphonso mango at Goa, and that of Mazagon on Bombay, have deservedly obtained the preference to every other sort. The fruit is delineated in its various stages, as is sometimes seen on the same tree, adorned by one of the most beautiful Indian butterflies. /
