Realizing that many of these questions were small articles in themselves, if properly answered, and that there was a great lack of continuity of thought, I decided it would be more to the point to compile a small pamphlet covering the more important facts. I was in a rather fortunate position to do this, for my grandfather having served throughout the Mutiny, and my father having been born in India, my interest in that country is hereditary. I have further had the opportunity of personal experience in trading with India as the export manager of two firms, and have spared no effort in making an exhaustive study of India as a market. Though this pamphlet does not pretend to be exhaustive, nevertheless the facts contained have been obtained from the most recent and authoritative sources during the past three years. I want it to be of interest to all who may care to read it; and can hope for no more than that it will be of service.
