Cities of India (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Cities of India
These papers have been selected and arranged so that the volume might adapt itself to the traveller. The visitor, if he starts from Bombay and stays a few days at the cities in the order in which they are given in this book, will see a great deal that is best worth seeing on the continent of India, within moderate compass of time. All he can never see, and there is subject enough for twenty quartos. As a large number of people who must remain at home take an interest and feel a pride in our Indian Empire, it is hoped that these papers may offer them some pleasure and some information. Of their omissions and imperfections, no one can be more conscious than the author.
The papers headed Bombay, Delhi, and Calcutta appeared in the Pall M all Magazine, and the permission to reprint and use the illustrations is hereby gratefully acknowledged.
