One of the wonders of the country of Seebee is, that to the north of it is seen a cupola, which is called, in Sindee tongue, Maree, or Gurhee, and when any one goes there, it disapprears from the sight. One time Sultan Mahomed Bukree, taking two or three thousand people, went all over those hills, but he could not see anything of it; he did not find this cupola. It is said that it is a talisman, made by former people, and that beneath it there is treasure. A Durwish once went there, when he found something: after that, on the strength of this many people went there; but none of these found anything. The fort of Seebee is upon a small hill, the stones on which are all round; and as much as the earth is dug, such round stones are found. In Kore Zumeen, which is a part of Seebee, the cotton plants are as large as Bheree trees, and the men there, getting on horseback, pluck the cotton. On each of these plants there are always one or two hundred snakes, which are knocked off by sticks, when the cotton is gathered: if a person is bitten by one of these, the part is pricked at the time with the point of a knife, and the blood drawn out, and he generally recovers. A small river near Seebee ran over brimstone: if any one drank the water, he became sick— many have died of this sickness; but it did not affect the inhabitants, because it had become habitual to them. Sultan Mahomed every year sent people to try this water, and the greater part of them always died. In the time of Khilafut Punahee, a great flood of waters came, and taking this brimstone out by the roots, washed it away; from which time the sickness has been less. The water of this river runs 50 kos beyond Seebee, collecting at Saroh, where it is taken away for the fields; that which is in excess flows into the lake of Munchoor, which is near Sehwan. On the banks of that lake there are many snakes, the bite of which few survive. The men about there wear very long, wide drawers, to defend themselves.

I went there, and saw the men irrigating their fields; and as I was going along, I saw snakes at every step of my horse. I wished to dis­mount, but for fear of these I did not do so, going off to a distance in the plain for that purpose. In the country of Seebee, there were formerly many forts, and much cultivation; but all has now become deserted. The hot winds blow there. The country between Seebee, Dehra, and Kushmoor is called Bargan, the horses of which are not inferior to those of Irag: when a foal is born, they place it upon gravel, upon which it walks for one year, and its hoofs become like stone; so much so, that it is not necessary to shoe, and these go amongst the hills without shoes.

A tribe remains at Chauttr, called Kuheree. The reason of their having this name is this: Kuheer is the name of a tree, on one of which one of their ancestors mounted, and striking it with his whip, it moved like a horse: in this manner the name Kuheree originated. Near Gunjabah, which is part of Seebee, there is a place where water comes forth, and with this, fishes; much ground is occupied by this water. Amongst the hills at Gunjabah there is one very high and perpendicular: from this hangs an iron cage, in which, it is said, there is something— the hand cannot reach it: if any one, by getting to the top from the other side, tries to get hold of it, it goes far from him, and if one attempts to get up to it from below, it rises, or goes to one side, the earth underneath appearing to recede far away. Seebee and Gunjabah are in this way: the hills of Sitore and the river Ab Kuseedah (drawn water) from Seebee and Gunjabah run to the river Sind. All this country is desert. The road to Kandahar lays over this Rhunn, which is 100 kos in length from the river to Seebee, and it is 60 kos in breadth. For four months in the days of the sun, the hot winds prevail here.
