The Trial of Maharaja Nanda Kumar

Excerpt from The Trial of Maharaja Nanda Kumar: A Narrative of a Judicial Murder This book is mainly a reprint of two articles in the Calcutta Review of this year Calcutta Review of this year, but I have altered the arrangement, and I have made a good many additions and omissions. I have also made much use of the invaluable documents recently discovered in the High Court Record-room. I am not able to make the account of the Trial easy reading, and it is by lawyers and students of history that I wish to be judged. I confess that when I first received Sir J. Stephen's book, I was a good deal discouraged, and almost dismayed. I saw that I had made some mistakes in my former writings on the subject (though really that about the kararnama was the only one which affected my argument), and I felt that it would be perilous to enter the lists against one so able and so famed as Sir J. Stephen. I had been a great admirer of Sir James's legal work in India, and I felt it rather cruel that he should imply that I knew nothing about English law, for I had been a diligent student of his own works, and thought I had learned something from them. My discouragement, however, was removed when I found that Sir J. Stephen had evidently taken up the subject hastily, and had written his book in a hurry.
