E. M. Forster to Malcolm Darling, 10 February 1910: "I left off the last [letter to Darling] saying that I was going to tell you something special in the next, and now for the life of me I can"t remember what it is. It"s a comment on our civilisation. This reminds me: of my story being read to the Rajah [...] I don"t know why it should make me smile, but it does [...] Perhaps he would think it odd to read a book about Indian Art, as I have been doing -- by Havell. A little petulant in tone, but fascinating."
