Excerpt from The Failure of Lord Curzon: A Study in "Imperialism" An Open Letter to the Earl of Rosebery

Views of cultured Englishmen in India. Excepting the Durbar and its theatrical surroundings, which were an abomination to anglo-indians, a levelling down to Asiatic tawdriness, Lord Curzon has done little. He has, indeed, appointed commissions on education, police, irrigation, &c but reform is still in the clouds. There have been grandiose schemes of water supply, costing some thirty millions sterling. Millions also are to be expended on great thoroughfares Opening up Calcutta, and millions on police. But where is the money to come from? There has, in fact, been much eloquence and imagination, written and spoken, but no achievements.
