Scope and Content

With a rough list of contents. This journal covers Elphinstone's life in India from 1811 to 1817, starting with his appointment as Resident at Poona and his journey there with stopovers at Ceylon, Goa and Bombay. [Although Elphinstone began this journal in February 1811, the next entry jumps to January 1816 and then back again to 1811 onwards, which he seems to have written from memory]
