Is in Delhi, whence he dates his letter to M. de la Mothe le Vayer,

e p. 239.

At Delhi, Aurangzeb about to start for Kashmir.

At Lahore, Aurangzeb having arrived there.

After travelling in Kashmir, he voyages to Bengal with Tavernier,
who left Agra on the 25th November. On the 6th December they are at
Alum Chand, about eighteen miles west of Allahabad.

Tavernier and Bernier part company near Rajmahal. Bernier pro¬
ceeding to Kasimbazar (Tavernier's Travels. Edited by Dr. Ball,
London, 1889), afterwards travelling from Bengal to Masulipatam (see
my text, p. 113) and Golkonda, where he heard of the death of the Shah
Jahan (p. 198), which event happened on the 22d January 1666.

In this year he was still in Golkonda (text, p. 195), and it is probable
that in the early part of it he embarked at Surat, where he saw Chardin
the traveller, see page 312.

He is at Sheraz in Persia, see p. 300.

Is at Taduan near Sheraz, whence he addresses a letter to M.
Chapelain at Paris, received there on the 15th February 1669.

M. Chapelain addresses a letter on the 26th April from Paris to
Bernier at Marseilles.

Bernier is still at Marseilles, as would appear from a letter addressed
to him there,by M. Chapelain. It is probable that shortly after this
date he was in Paris arranging for the publication of his Travels.

Date of the French King's Licence for the printing and publishing
of his book.

The transfer of all his rights in the publication, to Claude Barbin,
is registered in the book of the Booksellers and Printeis of Paris.
