Sir Akbar Hydari entertains the Bartons in the house in the Malabar Hills. They return to Delhi during the Horse Show Week and stay at the Maidens Hotel. The viceroy invites them to dinner to meet the Nizam who greets them like old friends. The servants visit them at the hotel, greeting them with affection. They find out that the Nizam is still proving difficult under the current Resident, Colonel Keyes. The Consultative Committee set up to discuss the findings of the Second Round Table Conference is not making much progress and Sir Mirza, who sits at their table in the hotel dining room, seems depressed and ambivalent in his attitude to Gandhi. The atmosphere remains tense. Visits to Patiala and the model state of Bhopal are described. In Bombay, they encounter a taxi driver who reveals the depth of bitterness felt by many Indians. After a few days in Ceylon, they head for home. Sir William writes The Princes of India.
