    Excerpt from Notes From a Diary, Vol. 1 of 2: Kept Chiefly in Southern India, 1881-1886

    The two volumes which I now offer to the indulgence of those who care to follow me into new scenes, cover the period which elapsed between my departure from this country and my laying down the Government of Madras in December 1 8 8 6.

    So far as I can, I have excluded business, politics, and the graver interests of a Governor from these pages also but there is this difference between the life to which I had been accustomed in the House of Commons, and the life I led in India. The Head of an Indian Government knows nothing of the Recesses which diversify the Parliamentary year and prevent its monotony becoming intolerable. The day hardly ever dawns for him which is not largely occupied with public affairs of one kind or another.

    That being so, it is hardly possible absolutely to exclude business from these pages but I have done my very best to effect that object. I am the more able to do this, because in 1 884. And 1 8 86 I published in India two Minutes Anglia State-papers in the nature of Bluebooks, which, taken together, set forth pretty fully my views upon the things which most occupied my mind in my capacity of Governor of Madras, and sent copies of them to all my friends in this country whom I thought likely to be interested in Indian Administration.
