J.A. Saldanha's Devanagari MS of the Khristapurana

This is what J.L. Saldanha has to say about the single Devanagari MS that he examined:
The single Devanagari transliteration obtined in connexion with the present publication, through the kindness of Mr. J.A. Saldanha, is, however, full of modern forms given in plce of the old ones of the Romanized copies, and contains, besides, numerous errors. It seems to hve drawn  good deal of attention at the late Centenary Celebration of the Bombay Branch of the Royal Asiatic Society, at which it was exhibited at Mr. Saldanha's express desire." ["Introduction," The Christian Puranna (Bolar, Mangalore: Simon Alvares, Esq., 1907) XL note 2.]
