On the morning of 14 May, at seven o'clock, the author and his companions landed near the Custom House, whence their baggage passed without the difficulty and loss of time customary in India. They put up in a very nice inn, called the Union Hotel, which commanded a view of both the sea and the town. Their party, it appeared, was looked upon by the curious natives as one of the seven wonders of the world. In this final chapter, the author talks about his arrival at Southampton, London, a certain Mr Latham and Mr Pulsford, the sights of London, the opera, and his return to India.
