Description

Excerpt from Up the Country, Vol. 2 of 2: Letters Written to Her Sister From the Upper Provinces of India Yesterday evening Bunj eet gave us a party in the Shalimar gardens, which were illuminated in every direction. The party was like all the others, except that it was less crowded, and there was an introduction of Afghans. The brother of our enemy Dost Mahomed, who is not fettered by foolish feelings of family affection, has come over to us. He and his sons and followers were rather picturesque, with their enormous coarse turbans and cloth gaberdines, and great jack-boots, amongst all those jewelled Sikhs. Runjeet was extremely civil to them. I thought one of the amusing incidents of the evening would be, that I should topple over backwards, chair and all, into the garden below the sort of open summer house in which we were sitting. Runjeet is particular in the arrangement of his circle - and also rather peculiar. He and G. Were seated just in a corner of the open arch, so as to have a side View of the fireworks, and my chair was put next to Runjeet's in the middle of the arch with no ledge to the floor and my back to the garden. I moved off, on pretence that I could see nothing, but he sent for me back again, and I think must have been disappointed at the precision with which I sat bolt upright.
