Three ‘Lent Officers’ from the ICS are appointed who set about regularizing the finances and the judicial system, but the Nizam makes life difficult for them and for the president, Sir Kishan Pershad. Sir Mirza Ismail is invited to take his place but he feels he cannot leave Mysore. Barton takes home leave in the summer of 1927 and the Nizam behaves better towards his stand-in. The Nizam continues to press for unsuitable candidates to be included on his council. There is apprehension about the future of the states in a democratic Indian government and the widening gap between the Hindus and Muslims is also causing concern. A Parliamentary Commission under Sir John Simon is set up without including Indian members. Lady Barton gives birth to a daughter, Elizabeth, the author, in the Nizam’s Palace in Ooty.
