The Feringhees

Elizabeth Hamilton

Oxford University Press

The Nizam, suspecting the Resident’s influence, is angered by the banquet speech and does not give the Bartons a farewell dinner, only inviting him to tea, but in general there is a good send-off and the servants accompany them to the dock to say goodbye. Sir William is appointed Adviser on Indian affairs to electrical and telephone companies. He receives news of the death of his brother-in-law, Sir Steuart Pears, Lieutenant Governor of the North-West Frontier Province. He keeps in touch with Indian affairs and meets many friends who come over for the Round Table Conference where minority groups are well represented but the Hindu-dominated Congress fails to send any delegates. The states are also well represented and present a united front. Gandhi attends the Second Round Table Conference, which ends with a lack of agreement.

Keywords:   William Barton’s retirement, Sir Steuart Pears, round table conference, Congress, Gandhi
