This is the first of four volumes of the writings of Allan Octavian Hume (1829-1912), a genuine British liberal radical, who began his professional life as an Indian Civil Service (ICS) officer, evolved into a persistent critic of the Raj and became famous as the principal founder of the Indian National Congress the political organization which led India to independence in 1947. This volume focuses mainly on Hume's years in district administration in the North-Western Provinces, now part of the state of Uttar Pradesh. Hume was immersed in this region for seventeen years, eleven of which were spent in one district, Etawah, where he was magistrate and collector from early 1856 to the spring of 1867, except for two years (1861-3) of sick leave in Britain. He lived through the thick of the Rebellion of 1857-9, blamed the outbreak on misguided British policies and was criticized by fellow-officers for being too generous towards the insurgents. Hume emerges, from these documents on his years in district administration, as a committed, liberal radical reformer, but one who was especially sensitive to Indian opinion. From his perspective, this meant that at times his European ideology had to be modified to fit Indian conditions or its application postponed until it found local acceptance. He tried to govern in consultation and cooperation with Indian officials and local leaders. Printed Pages: 908 with frontispiece.
