The Royal Visit to India: private tent of the Prince of Wales at the camp of Delhi, from a sketch by one of our special artists, 1876.'The Prince [future King Edward VII], while he stayed in the camp of military manoeuvres at Delhi, occupied a private tent which had been prepared for his accommodation....[It] is a double-poled tent with a window and fireplace; a door at the end leads to the sleeping-tent...[It] has been furnished with a writing-table, a number of smaller tables, sofas, and chairs, and, like all the other tents, it is comfortably carpeted. It is just such a room as any gentleman at home would have for retiring to for quiet reading or writing, only in this case it has got the walls and roof of canvas, and the carpet is on the ground instead of being on a floor. The people in India know how to make tents comfortable, and in this it may be supposed that the highest perfection has been attained'. From "Illustrated London News", 1876.
