Dear Sir,

I am sorry to say I have never heard of the book to which Dr.. Burnell referred1 and do not know where it is to be found. If I hear anything about it I shall inform you.

Yours faithfully,
R. Caldwell, Bp..

1 This probably refers to the book Gup. Sketches of Anglo-Indian life and character, by Florence Marryat, published in 1868 in London. This book is mentioned in the last of Arthur Burnell’s letters to Schuchardt ( Nr. 1468) in the following terms: “A book called “Gup“ (by Florence Marryat, about 1865) will give you much information about the half-casts etc.“ (transcribed in: Ahlgrimm-Siess, Jörg. 2014.
