Scope and Content

To her mother from Allahabad. A year since she landed and since the day of her wedding. There will be two more months of cool weather before the violent heat and she will be better prepared for it than last year. All her clothes etc, will be arranged to make everything as simple and easy as possible. She describes Christmas Day, beginning with a procession of servants and tradesmen with trays of gifts of fruit, nuts etc. beautifully and elaborately arranged - the most beautiful sent by the undertaker. Food sent to the hospital and workhouse. Money presents to servants and dinner for 20 old widows. An A.D.C. has died from a fall at polo; she is shocked by the dangers of the game.
