Falls of Garsuppah, Canara District, West Coast of India - from an original sketch, 1856. 'This scene of magnificent nature is in the Canara district, on the west coast of India, where the spectacle of these stupendous waterfalls from the Ghauts is a sight often enjoyed by tourists in search of the sublime. The scenery is delightful and grand, "displaying stupendous scarps, fearful chasms, numerous waterfalls, dense forests, and perennial verdure"...The Falls are from 800 to 900 feet in height. The several torrents have their respective names: commencing from the left hand, the first is called "the Raja"; the second "the Roaree"; the third, "the Rocket"; and the fourth, "La Dame Blanche".' From "Illustrated London News", 1856.
