The fruit of a large tree of Silhet, which, when ripe, is sold in the markets of India, and has been introduced into those of London, under the name Nirmullees or Nirmillies. One of them is well rubbed for a minute or two around the inside of a vessel containing water, which it purifies by causing the impurities, which the fluid contains, to be deposited through its albumen and casein it is supposed.
