No. IX.

THE GOVERNMENT HOUSE, FORT ST. GEORGE.

The Government House is within the Fort; here the business of the English East India Company is transacted, but the residence of the Governor is at the distance of a mile and a quarter from Madras.

The colonnade to the right leads down to the sea gate, where merchandize of various kinds is seen continually passing to and from the ships in the roads.
