The question of the Berars is soon raised, the Nizam angling to have the territories restored. In general, his acquisitiveness and corrupt practices cause growing concern, as well as his overbearing treatment of his sons. Sir William outlines the situation to Lord Reading and the secretary of state, Lord Birkenhead, and receives support from both of them but the new viceroy, Lord Irwin, is hesitant. After being summoned to Simla for talks, Sir William goes above the viceroy’s head and appeals to Lord Birkenhead who gives him full support. Khan Khasmadi becomes the Nizam’s chief publicity agent and the extremist Muslim press becomes more vocal, urging him to take the lead in the Muslim world. Barton is awarded a knighthood.

Keywords:   Berars, Nizam, William Barton, Lord Reading, Lord Birkenhead, Lord Irwin, viceroy, Khan Khasmadi, Muslim press
