With This Small Force Of Only 400 Men, He Gives Much Disturbance To The King Of Narsinga.

[Footnote 64:

There is a district on the west of Gujerat or Guzerat named _Chuwal_, on the river Butlass or Banass which runs into the gulf of Cutch, which may be here meant. - .]

[Footnote 65: No name having the least affinity to that in the text is to be found in any modern map of India near the coast of Gujerat. It would almost appear that the author had now gone down the coast of India, and that his Chuwal and Dabuly are Chaul and Dabul on the coast of the Concan. - E.]

[Footnote 66: Nothing can possibly be made of this island of Goga. There is a town on the coast of Gujerat and western side of the gulf of Cambay called Gogo, but it is no island, and could not possibly be subject to the king of the Deccan; and besides Verthema is obviously now going down the western coast of India. - E.]

[Footnote 67: Of a Swammy or Hindoo idol. - E.]

From the island of _Goga_ I went to the city of _Dechan_[68], of which the king or sultan is a Mahometan, and to whom the before mentioned captain of the Mamelukes at _Goga_ is tributary. The city is beautiful, and stands in a fertile country which abounds in all things necessary for man. The king of this country is reckoned a Mameluke, and has 35,000 horse and foot in his service.
