The center of the Island is wholly destitute of product, occasioned by the frequent salenes the sea maketh there in every high water, which at nip tide retiring into the sea leaveth the ouse dry, from whence the sun exhaleth foul and sickly vapours, especially in the month of October, when he is in the zenith. The military of the Island consists of five companies of Christians, that is, Europeans, topasses and cofferes, three whereof mount and relieve alternate in Bombay Castle, the eldest company being distinguished by blue facings, the second green and the third red. The Island of Carongar lieth east of Bombay Castle about two leagues, being very remarkable land, rising high with two large hills and a valley of coco trees in the middle, having a fine sandy shore. The town of Bombay is divided into two distinct limits, the English and Black.
