In Lichefilds translation of Castaneda, this date
is made the 27th
September, which is an obvious mistake.—E.
 By some strange blunder, Lichefild says they came
to Cananor; but
from all the circumstances in the contexts, it is obvious that the

 According to Astley, a peace was concluded between

and the little regard that is had to true merit!”—Astl. I. 58.
