What seems clear from a further reading of this report is that Blackwell has really been put on a mission to locate and procure good timber from the jungles of Khandesh and that he is sparing no effort in the task assigned to him.
It also emerges that forests are not open areas at this time, ready to be harvested by the colonial authorities at their own will and as and when needed.

Soon after his arrival at Bombay his remarkable energy attracted notice, and in July 1820 he became acting adjutant to the first battalion of the 12th regiment on its embodiment at Poona, an experience which he found to be of immense advantage to him in his later career.
In 1825 he was sent to Khandesh, where he trained a light infantry corps, formed of the wild robber Bhils, gaining over them a marvellous personal influence, and employing them with great success in checking outrages and plunder.
Their loyalty to him had its principal source in their boundless admiration of his hunting achievements, which in cool daring and hairbreadth escapes have perhaps never been equalled.
