From whence came you?
Where are you going?
I came from Rajemahl.
I shall arrive at Calcutta in about a month.
How long have you left Rajemahl?
I left Rajemahl yesterday, but the boat cannot get forward because of contrary winds.
There are such waves in the Ganges that I cannot get on at all.
Had it not been for this wind, I should had arrived at Mohungunj.
It would have been well if I had gone in a palanquin.
This is a bad country. If there had been a carriage road, I could have gone with pleasure.
It is impossible to go so far in a carriage, there are so many rivers and rivulets to cross, and no place where you could put up at night.
How much water is there at the mouth of the river?
There is plenty of water. The water now comes plentifully from the upper countries.
How many rowers have you?
I brought an extra number of rowers for the purpose of travelling both day and night.
Come to my house, and stay two or three days.
I wish to go with you; but it is improper now.
The delay will not be great. Come along.
Set off. I am coming.
Well, we will go together.
