Transcript P,'~, OU41 ,f- .x EXPLANATION OF THE PLATES. 15 delineated is common in every town and village throughout Hindostan ; perfectly familiar in the houses and gardens of natives and Europeans : the stripes are sometimes of a darker brown. The tamarind leaves and blossoms are of the usual standard; the fruit is shorter than is generally seen, on account of the size of the plate. XLIX. * y^ The Mawahw Tree of Guzerat.

The trees thus united form a peculiar contrast, especially when the Palmyra soars loftily above the spreading branches and picturesque trunks of the burr. The
