गुजरात के भ्रमण में सूरत आदि जगहों के आदि-निवासी लोगो पर मसी महोदय की टिपण्णी मेघ (dher)

"-----The population of this territory is mingled, and generally destitute of the means of improvement. The Bheels, Bhatts and Dheras, the Catties, Coolies and Mewatties, the Charons and Grassias, form a strange and heterogeneous diversity ; but many of them are in the rudest state of civilization.----"page 355
