Excerpt: ...the native town, my object in doing so being that I wished to visit, after the rising of the Court, a person who arrived by the mail, and who 'Jwas bound, either this morning or to-morrow for Calcutta. I wished to go and visit this person st the Adelphi Hotel, where he was putting up.

At the Floral Fountain they were joined by fourteen or fifteen more more
