Excerpt from The Prince of Wales in India: Or From Pall Mall to the Punjaub
It was a bright alitumn morning when we landed in India, - bright not in the sense that you in England understand bright ness, but with a gleam and a heat which you only associate with the midday glare of a hot summer's day, and not at all the cold calmness Of an English autumn. Nothing could be pleasanter to all of us, heartily tired as we were of the sea and its belong ings, than at length to descry the long line of hills which told us of proximity to Bombay. Had we not had the incentive to satisfaction which a three weeks' voyage engendered, the pro Spect which presented itself, as the ship neared shore, would of itself have been sufficiently delightful. Only five minutes ago, and the sky was brilliantly lit with stars; now the sun's rays were shooting up in the east behind the grey mountains, and driving night away with startling rapidity. Like a huge pano rama Bombay rose before us. Yonder on the right was the island of Elephants, with its caves and its jungle; away in front of us Trombay Island with its mountains and precipices. Bombay itself, skirting the bay, was thrusting out, so to speak, from the lingering gloom into the advancing sunshine, its white houses, its palm-trees, its pleasant hills and valleys, and its splefidid harbour, and drawing forth, from those who now saw it for the first time, repeated exclamations of astonishment.
