are still kept as war troj^& in the land of Wanchos, naukfe konyaks of
the frontier tribes. The proud Konyaks with their strange dialects show
objects of the past with pride.

with in wild confusion, seem to the spectator like the wrecks of a ruined
world, and while the eye is gratified with the pleasing panorama, a series
of hills innumerable is presented to view retiring far away in fine
perspective,till their blue conical summits are relieved by the proud
pinnacles of the Himalayas"
