Notes

First and sole edition. "Mrs. Muter was married to Captain Muter of the 60th Rifles stationed at Meerut at the outbreak. He later served in the assault of Delhi with the fourth column. Mrs. Muter claimed to be the first woman to enter Delhi after it was taken by the English. Just outside of Portsmouth the Muter's ship The Eastern Monarch exploded. Both escaped with their lives. Mrs. died in 1914. Some authorities have questioned the accuracy of this work as it was published so long after the events" (Sorsky). Well represented institutionally but commercially elusive.
