Mahurrum.—Its origin.—The Sheahs and Soonies.—

I have promised to give you, my friends,
occasional sketches of men and manners, com-
prising the society of the Mussulmauns in India.
Aware of the difficulty of my task, I must en-
treat your kind indulgence to the weaknesses -
of a female pen, thus exercised for your amuse-
ment, during my twelve years' domicile in their
immediate society.
