Scope and Contents

Letter from the Maharajah of Alwar (Alwar, Rajputana, [India]) to WSC hoping that the arrival of Lord Peel and Lord Winterton at the India Office will help India, praising the firm policy of [the Viceroy] Lord Reading [earlier Sir Rufus Isaacs], noting that Reading has not yet attained proficiency at shooting tigers, and looking forward to seeing what he does about the Indian States, whose problems are less complex than those of British India. Expresses confidence that WSC will be equal to the challenge of Eamon De Valera in Irish affairs, wonders when the current numerous conferences will improve the current gloomy European situation, approves the Labour Party's decision not to join with the Communists and WSC's policy of getting Emir Feisul elected king in Mesopotamia [Iraq]. Speculates on whether democracy can supersede the entrenched social order in India and refers to an accident he has had.
