Notes: ‘The book before us is evidently penned by one acquainted with the country in which the scene is set. The Author, or rather Editor, for so he denominates himself, has preferred keeping close to truth and character, than to range widely, in the domaine of fancy. It is fair, therefore, we consider his book in this point of view, and it will be found an entertaining work, imparting with amusement no small share of useful information’. New Monthly Magazine. ‘Pandurang Hari is a Novel the story, said to have been written by a Hindoo, in the Mahratta tongue, is fictitious, though it may embody many real incidents, and some historical facts, which we believe it does. Its great merit, independent of a narrative of continued interest and great variety of scene and circumstance, lies in the portraiture of the Hindoo character. The main story is replete with singular adventures, sometimes [illeg. on microfilm], at others painful, but always instructive. There are many episodes which will be read with pleasure’.

Notes: ‘This novel is the most original of its kind that we have ever met with–various in its incidents, and abounding in powerful delineations of the passions, and of the human character generally. It is full of interesting sketches also: relative to the politics and condition of our Indian Empire, and the manners, vices, and virtues, of its inhabitants’. News of Literature.
