(fig. 4), and Jourts, p. 157, by the lines G H B K. Marquees (fig. 3), and a side view of fig. 5, by G L B M.

Notwithstanding the great height and width of conical tents,
compared to the others, we see by the diagram that they afford
scanty space at the level of
the head of a seated person.
There is a recent contrivance
by Major Rhodes, to be seen
at Silver and Co.'s, that is a
modification of' the gipsy
tent. Among ordinary, well
nown tents, I believe none
will satisfy the varied wants

of a traveller so well as

fig, 4.
