Topic: [A pen sketch of the view from the author`s verandah in Hindostan, concentrating on the transforming effects of moonlight on scenery. It is embellished by an anecdote of an Indian man whose snake bite is cured by a European physician before a crowd "whose sable bodies were seen in deep contrast with the shining whiteness" (of a column in moonlight) and whose gestures of admiration and gratitude, seen in the same light, seemed "almost sublime"]
