Excerpt from The Coronation Durbar and Its Consequences: A Second Supplementary Chapter to the Government of India The correspondence which led up to the Durbar announce ments is embodied in a dispatch from the Government of India dated August 25, 1911, and in the Secretary of State's reply of November 1, 1911. The dispatch states very fully the nature of the proposals submitted to the Secretary of State, and the reasons for them. The reply conveys a general assent. As both dispatch and reply are printed in an Appendix (i) to this chapter, it seems unnecessary to recapitulate their contents here. The policy foreshadowed by the correspondence and announced at the Durbar embodied two great administrative changes a remodelling of the partition of Bengal, and a transfer of the capital of India from Calcutta to Delhi.
