    A commentary on the eclipse to be observed from India and on dramatic events in Anglo-Indian politics. It shows India as a female figure crouching in a corner. Behind her stands John L M Lawrence, the viceroy and governor-general of India, who tells the woman that the ominous shadow that is being cast over her is that of Richard S Bourke (6th Earl of Mayo), who had recently been appointed Lawrence's successor.
