Native gentlemen in well-to-do circumstances, who come here for the benefit of their health in the hot senson, should patronize him in engaging house accommodations through him, which will entitle him to obtain commission from houseowners, instead of using European Agency for this purpose. This kind of patronage will enable him ( Mr. Dixit) to assist the poor natives in various ways. I will use him as my Agent to secure house accommodation for me hereafter and I recommend that every one who is of my opinion should do so and thus give the poor natives the benefit of his assistance on their arrival here at cheap remuneration.
