1919. Dell, British writer, began writing at a young age. Most of
her stories were ones of passion and love set in India and other
British colonial possessions. The story begins: A great roar of
British voices pierced the jeweled curtain of the Indian night. A
toast with musical honors was being drunk in the sweltering
dining-room of the officers' mess. The enthusiastic hubbub spread
far, for every door and window was flung wide. Though the season
was yet in its infancy, the heat was intense. Markestan had the
reputation in the Indian Army for being one of the hottest corners
in the Empire in more senses than one, and Kurrumpore, the military
center, had not been chosen for any especial advantages of climate.
