Klappentext

Excerpt from Bengal Under the Lieutenant-Governors, Vol. 2 of 2: Being a Narrative of the Principal Events and Public Measures During Their Periods of Office, From 1854 to 1898

Ample materials-would be available for a full account of Sir R. Temple's distinguished career previous to his time in Bengal if it were my intention to give complete lives of all the Lieutenant Governors. The bare enumeration of his appointments is a record' list of Services, which no other Civilian has equalled. One Or two brief allusions to his previous career must suffice. His first important work was as Secretary to the Lawrences in the Panjab. It was said of him. That he had made the Panjab by drawing the attention of the public to that provin:e by his well-known administra tion reports and he was giventhe credit, even by an ill-natu'red critic, of having converted the Central Provinces 'from a frrra z'ncogmla into one of the best-governed and most prosperous provinces in India. And a reviewer' of his book 'the Story of my Life wrote He now in his retirement looks back with pardonable pride on a career distinguished by success, justly attributable to zeal, loyalty, and capacity for using the-heads and hands of other men, a constant readiness to 'do good, and a singular absence of ill nature or vindictive passion. The autobiography just mentioned renders it unnecessary for me to do more than mention the appoint ments held by him before 1873-74.
