“Every elephant had two men, the _mahaut_ and his assistant; every two camels, one man; every cart, two men; besides whom were the _kholassies_ (tent-pitchers), the _chikarries_ (native huntsmen to mark down and flush the tiger), letter-carriers for the official personages, and finally the personal servants of the party, amounting in all to something like a hundred and fifty souls.”
“Funchal, the profile of Garajáo is that of an elephant's head, the mahaut sitting behind it in the shape of a red-brown boss, the expanded head of a double dyke seaming the tufas of the eastern face.”
“The word mahout comes from the Hindi words mahaut and mahavat, derivatives of the Sanskrit word mahamatra, meaning "[one] having great measure.”
