Excerpt from India's True Representatives: Being a Speech Delivered in 1895 in BombayIn the days when Natives of India were rare in England, it sometimes happened that people utterly unknown and of no position were received and were able to pass themselves off in social circles for princes and rajas and nawabs, on the strength of a little tinsel, a gold-embroidered cap, a satin coat, or a little jewellery, such as even loafers in Indian Bazaars affect in Indian towns. The phenomenon is no longer possible in Society owing to the increased numbers of natives going to England but it seems that there is still room for it in political circles.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
