repeat his former request in his own
language, Anna ma vino, hurra kultana,
“Dear gentlemen, give me brandy.” Sir H.
with great good nature complied with his
request, and gave him two or three glasses
which he seemed to enjoy very much, but
still he cried, Hurra kultana. A few
more glasses were given him, which made
him drop his elbow from the window, and
rather grow shorter. As his legs would
not bear him up, he bent his knees against
the wall, and by the help of his bands he
supported himself by holding fast by the
window-post; but still he called, Hurra
kultana
. Two glasses more were given
him, till at length he could say nothing
but Kultana, kultana, and gradually sunk
from the window.

When his countrymen who were standing
around saw him drop, they took him
carefully up and carried him away. Word,
however, was soon brought that the man
was so ill that they expected his throat
would soon be on fire, and if he did not
recover before the morning, our post horses
would be stopped and our journey
prevented.
