text: My voyage to India on board the Victoria, a luxurious Lloyd Triestino liner, provided all the pleasures of gradual introduction to the eastern scene and climate which the modern traveller by air never experiences. Brief stays in Bombay, Simla, Delhi and Calcutta gave me a first taste of India, and little did I then know that a large part of my active life would be spent on the subcontinent. Neither did I realize that during my stay at the Viceregal Lodge as a guest of Lord Linlithgow I was sharing a style of life which was soon to pass into history.
