The third section of the book consists of a letter to the celebrated Colbert, descriptive of the government of India, its pecuniary resources, its military strength and its immense expenditure. The information which this letter conveys is important and comprehensive, and would alone entitle M. Bernier to the praise bestowed on him by his countrymen. He shews himself to have been an observer at once inquisitive and judicious, who travelled for the double purpose of instructing himself, and of contributing to the instruction of others.
A minute description of Delhi and Agra, the capital cities of the empire follows next; and in this chapter, written with all the author's powers of observation and research, is contained an animated account of the court of the Great Mogul.
