Excerpt from The Little World of an Indian District Officer

I must begin by explaining who I am, what this book is about, and why it was written.

I am a member of the Indian Civil Service, who, after serving for nearly twenty-nine years with credit, but without distinction, retired in the year 1903.

This book is the story of a thought. From the time when I first landed in India to the time when I finally left it, my great wish was to find a way of blending the will of the British Nation, the paramount power, with the will of the people among whom I worked. As experience grew there gradually came into my mind an idea of how that could be done. The very last thing I did for the Government of Bengal was to embody in a small book a working scheme for the purpose. The Government may be presumed to have thought well of the scheme, since it spoke most favourably of the book, and bought copies of it for distribution to officers.
