Eliza [Tabor] to Mary Tabor

Scope and Content

To her mother from Allahabad. Describes the discomforts of living for a fortnight in a tent, while the house is repaired and decorated. But there are compensations; entertaining is impossible and the tent seems less depressing than the house when she is left alone in the evenings. In the house she is haunted by memories of the syce who recently died so suddenly.
