In returning from Ormus to Kerman, you pass through a fertile plain, but the bread made there cannot be eaten, except by those who are accustomed to it, it is so exceedingly bitter, on account of the water with which it is made. In this country there are excellent hot baths, which cure many diseases.
 Now Tebriz in Corcan.—E.
 This must refer to Fars, or Persia proper; as Tebriz is in Persia.—E.
 Perhaps Iracagemi?—E.
 Perhaps Kerman?—E.
 Inexplicably corrupt.—E.
 Timochaim and Arboresecco are inexplicable, perhaps
transcription. But Timochaim appears to nave been Mekran on the coast
of the Indian sea, and perhaps reached to the Indus, as observed in a
former note; and it may have included Sigistan.—E.
 Jasdi is almost certainly Yezd in Fars. Pinkerton
considers Chiaman to
be Crerina, which is impossible, as that place is afterwards named:
Perhaps it may be the province named Timochaim, mentioned in the
immediately preceding note.—E.
 As the route may be considered as nearly in a
straight line south from
Yesd, Crerina may possibly be the city of Kerrnan, and the cold
elevated plain, a table land between the top of the Ajuduk mountains
and a nameless range to the south, towards Gambroon or Ormus. Adgamad
being destroyed, cannot now be ascertained, but it must have stood on
the fine plain above described, and at the bottom of these southern
mountains. Reobarle is not to be found In our maps, but must have been
a name for the province of Ormus.—E.
 There is a series of corruptions or absurdities
here: a Malabar
government under a Sultan Asiden, or Asi-o-din, situated at Dely,
conquered by a secret expedition from Turkestan, requires a more
correct edition of the original of Marco Polo to render intelligible.
We can suppose a tribe of Indians or Blacks not far from Gombroon, to
have been under the rule of a mussel man Sultan, and conquered or
subverted by a Tartar expedition from Touran, or the north of Persia:
But this remains a mere hypothetical explanation.—E.
