The author, who was one of the chaplains at Fort St George, considered it his duty to make the character of this part of Southern Indian more generally known. He champions the favourable climate and the general health benefits of the region to which many a European family took up their temporary abode there. This, the first book on the Neilgherries, in the form of letters, was originally published in the newspaper Bengal Hurkaru.
