E.A.(Ted) Hoare et al. in Karachi - 23 June, 1917

from Diary entry by Ronald Storrs, 24 June 1917, page 261:

Ted Hoare [a British architect] for dinner, and a musical woman staying in the house [ Government House]; And afterwards he 'Meisters Forspiel III' badly and 'Quintet' well; she some Brahms and Bach—all driving my thoughts and desires back to decent peaceful civilisation. Bed not until 12. A snake had dropped from the ceiling upon Said’s [Storrs' manservant's] head, and he had rather creditably managed to stamp its head in, at the temporary cost of his nerves.
