Scope and content

Has just had an interview with the King, and has done his best to allay his anxiety at reports that action is being taken against the innocent dupes of the non-co-operators in India rather than the ringleaders, particularly Gandhi. He also reassured him with regard to the Prince of Wales’s safety. Asks whether there is any truth in the report that, when no students attended the degree ceremony attended by the prince at Benares, high school boys were brought in to fill the vacant places. The King urged that the prince should omit Lahore from his tour.
