King of the British Society of Sorcerers Performed at Ahsan Manzil

October 29, 2008

…..“A few days later, I had the privilege of performing before a native audience, being engaged by His highness the Nawab of Dacca (Nawab Khwaja Ahsanullah). His wives and family were seated behind transparent curtains, through which they could see   without being seen (‘in purdah’).  His highness gave me a photograph and a very handsome silver bowl of Indian workmanship, together with a substantial cheque, and expresses his pleasure and astonishment at my various illusions.” … A Magician in Many Lands by Charles Bertram
