Originally published in 1893. This is a work based on the personal recollections of the author about Mr Thomason, giving preference to the religious aspects of his character, and due to this, it differs in tone to the more strictly historical biographies. Contents include: Parentage - Education - Career in India - Life as a District Officer - The North-Western Provinces - The Lieutenant Governor - Private Life in Government House - The Land Settlement - Canals of Irrigation - Public Instruction and General Policy. Author: Sir Richard Temple, Bart. Language: English Subject: India / History Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Obscure Press are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork."
