The character of the new viceroy, Lord Reading, is described here. He and his wife receive a great welcome when they visit Mysore. Gandhi’s civil disobedience campaign gains momentum, but Reading remains firm, Gandhi is imprisoned, and troubles have died down by the time he arrives in Mysore. Mrs Barton shares Lady Reading’s interest in helping Indian women and setting up clinics. The Resident and his wife carry out a winter tour of Coorg. It is as this time that the Bartons lose their four-year-old son, David, who dies after a tonsils operation.
