Excerpt from Cutch: Or, Random Sketches, Taken During a Residence in One of the Northern Provinces of Western India; Interspersed With Legends and Traditions
In noticing the natural productions of Cutch, I have not ventured to offer any description in scientific terms. Throughout the work, I have frequently diverged from the immediate subject, to offer such reﬂections as were suggested by the occasion, and which I trust will not be regarded as impertinent by the reader.
These pages are the result of a series of notes, taken during a residence of some years in Cutch; during which I have enjoyed unusual opportunities of becoming acquainted with the general and domestic manners of the population in its various castes.
The illustrative engravings are all from original designs, which, as productions of an amateur artist, will, I hope, equally with the literary sketches, be honoured with the indulgent suffrage of the reader.
