Bates writes of the "huge, sprawling, messy, sun-drunk, smelly, sensuous, fantastic anachronism of a city that lies at the mouth of the great Hooghli River in the Bay of Bengal" and the effects on the city of its "huge mass of soldiery of half a dozen nations." With two photographs. In The Strand (October, 1945, v. 110).
