“This work can be honestly recommended to all who are desirous of acquiring the elements of the Hindustani language, or of making themselves understood among the people of this country. We have seldom, if ever, seen such a small pocket companion with such a variety of useful instruction. The language of the Vocabulary and of the Dialogues appears quite unexceptionable. Any one acquainted with Hindustani will at once recognise its idiomatic accuracy, and cheerfully recommend it to the votice of all those who desire to come out to India not altogether unprepared to convey their own wishes to those who surround them.”-Friend of India, published at Serampore.
