Life of Sir Henry Lawrence

Description Description: BK 005105 NL 2 Among all the British officials holding the highest positions during the British rule in India during the 19th Century, none else has endeared himself more to the Indian masses than Sir Henry Lawrence. More especially, he was the darling of the people of Punjab in the post-annexation period. This comprehensive volume written by his fellow junior officer portrays his persona in all his qualities of head and heart. He emerges as a man of rare sensitivity, compassion and humanness. “All caught from him the sacred fire, his presence seemed all pervading, for the interests of the meanest were dear to him as those of the most powerful, and goodness and greatness were so natural wherever he came that other fruits seemed strange and impossible.” – Lt. General Abbot about Sir Henry Lawrence (p. 456)[edit]
