Abstract

The image of the respectable late-Victorian Englishman in India, defending the virtue of the natives, himself, and the memsahibs, and simultaneously working nobly to earn a living and possibly his fortune in India, was in sharp contrast to the earlier age of Company men. In the heady days of early empire building, fortunes were made as a result of moral flexibility and judicious wit as well as favorable trading conditions.
