Excerpt from The Personal Adventures and Experiences of a Magistrate: During the Rise, Progress and Suppression of the Indian Mutiny

Our house was large and handsomely furnished, we had many horses and a great retinue of servants, besides a guard of soldiers and numerous attendants on horse and foot, who were provided for me at the expense of the Government. I had a chest full of silver plate, which stood in the hall, and A a great store of Cashmere shawls, pearls, and diamonds.

Our life was secluded, and for the greater part of the year monotonous - travellers seldom passed, and there was little of incident; but among ourselves we were sociable, and in the extreme quiet there was something not unpleasant. In November, when the heat began to moderate, we went into tents and marched about the district. We passed the mornings in long rides and the day under groves of trees. Our life was then a perpetual picnic and very enjoyable.
