Excerpt from Mountstuart Elphinstone: And the Making of South-Western India
To him the Bombay Presidency owes both the eu largement of its territory and the organisation of its administrative system.

He died in 18 59, having survived the Mutiny and the transfer of the government from the Company to the Crown.
