Excerpt from Report on the Cultivation and Manufacture of Indigo in Bengal, 1899 In presenting my first Annual Report, I regret the delay which has occurred, but the work involved in the analyses and experiments has been much greater than I had anticipated. Even now the report is not so complete as I should like it to have been. As will be expected the report deals chiefly with my visit to India, the results of experiments made in Behar, and of analyses of indigo, soils, plants, &c., made in England since my return. I have analysed a great many samples taken at various times during my stay in Behar, but, unfortunately, on account of the heavy rains and floods in September these samples were not as representative as they might have been. Nevertheless, the work has been full of interest, and a considerable amount of valuable information has been gained. I fully believe that the cost of production of indigo in Behar can be materially reduced, and also that the quality in numerous cases may be greatly improved. I left London on the 25th May, 1898, and reached Mozufferpore on the 20th June. As stated in my first Indian Report to the Behar Planters' Association of the 14th July, I spent the first two or three weeks visiting various indigo factories (chiefly in the Champarun district), and thus gained a general knowledge of the present mode of manufacturing indigo. During this period a chemical laboratory was being erected in the compound of the Planters' Club, Mozufferpore, but it was about the end of July before everything was in working order. Some of the apparatus and chemicals did not arrive until later. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
