NOVEMBER, 1875.

WHAT THE PRINCE WILL SEE IN INDIA.

SHE British public knows very little about India, important

part of the empire as it is, and till the intention of the Prince of Wales to visit it was announced, the thirst for

information on that subject was easily slaked. The impression of most educated people was that India was a country of riches and splendour, tigers and elephants, doolies and coolies, curry and cutcherry, mild Hindoos and savage Sepoys, punkahs and howdahs, Ryots and Rajahs. In short, a very blurred, confused picture was that which the mention of India called up before the mind's eye of the average Briton, and his explanation of the various figures would have been somewhat vague. He would have been puzzled to decide whether the doolies carried the coolie, or the reverse, and would have a hazy idea that cutcherry, like curry, was an oriental dish. A little epheme. ral curiosity about that aggregate of countries and nations called British India has of late been excited simply by the Prince's intention to “do” it, and for a short time the empire once ruled by the Great Mogul and now administered by competition wallahs, will be the fashion. Perhaps, therefore, the reader may like to gather some general notion of what the Prince will see and do. My space is limited, so I cannot pretend to do more than skim the surface and deal with the subject in a desultory way. Anything like a systematic article on the royal visit would cover all the leaves in this magazine, and I am not at all sure whether it would be worth the while of any one to write it. My intention is much less pretentious, being merely to describe a few of the scenes which the royal party will probably behold. VOL. I.
