MENDIES - Bengal. I am particually interested in John Mendies (1775-1863), the author of Companion to Johnson's Dictionary in Bengali and English and wonder if he and William Carey ever met. Mendies book was printed on the Baptist Mission Press at Calcutta in at least 3 editions 1851,1856 and 1876. Several of John Mendies children died of smallpox during an epidemic at Serampore in 1832. Descendants of John Mendies have been found in Calcutta, Simla, Agra, Allahabad and Cawnpore. Families to which they were intermarried included Scott, Harrington, Ohme.

There exist a few programs for using Tibetan on "basic" PC's (8086/80286) and dot matrix printers: These include Peter Ebatson's Atisha system and the TTPS system - these probably give as good a result as you are ever going to get on such equiptment. The Tibetan! fonts and WordPerfect macros by Tony Duff and Gerry Weiner produce nice output on LaserJet or PostScript printers.
Their Post Script fonts are scaleable and also should work on PostScript Image setters. Their fonts encode each stack as a seperate character and only the vowel signs are added to the stacks. Their font
sets have a total of about 700 individual characters. And they have two styles, one based on the Indian hot metal font as used by the Baptist Mission Press for Das's dictionary - and a more calligraphic
looking font but with roughly the same general proportions. These fonts require WordPerfect 5 (or later) for DOS and a laser printer.
