Transcript 22 LXXV. Scenery among the Sacred Hindoo Groves at Chandode. This view contains some of the smaller dewals, or temples, under the Ficus Indica, and groves of Mango and Pepal trees, on the banks of the river Nerbudda, where the Brahmins pass their lives in voluptuous indolence, with the female choristers, and dancing girls. Sacred bulls stray unmolested, and monkeys are cherished, while the poor outcast Chandalah is not permitted to enter, nor even to breathe the surrounding atmosphere. LXXVI. View of Bombay in 1773, taken from the Harbour. This view contains the general face of the town towards the Harbour ; commencing with the Dock-yard; and including the Admiralty, Marine House, English Church, Pier, Bunder Castle, Dungaree Fort, or Fort George, and other conspicuous buildings, taken from the shipping opposite the Bunder Pier. LXXVII. View of Bombay Green, taken from the Writer s apartment at the Bunder. This view is engraved from a drawing made in the year 1767 ; it includes part of the Government House, the English Church, Secretary's Office, the residence of the Second in Council, and the scenes daily occurring in this part of the town of Bombay. Among these are introduced the palanquin, hackeree, Bengal-chair, and other objects which enlivened the spot while the drawing was made. </ LXXVIII. View on Bancoote River, in the Concan, from Dazagon Hill. The drawing of this delightful scene was taken from the summit of a lofty hill, near the hot-wells of Dazagon, forming almost a bird's-eye view. The wifrding of the river was peculiarly beautiful, forming many islands, cultivated and inhabited ; the landscape altogether presenting a pleasing picture of the best part of the Concan, or Cokun, which means the low country, compared with the Deccan, situated above the Gaut mountains.
