1916 – November 29

Left for Delhi 8.38 a.m. arrived Thursday Nov. 30th 7 a.m., went to Maiden’s Hotel. I find my work is to be President of a Committee of 15 C.O’s on the subject of free rations for the Native Army. Went out to the Kutb [now Qutb Minar] and to see New Delhi near the Kutb, with the Gordons, not much sign yet of the new city except beautiful roads.
