Mushirul Hasan

Oxford University Press

The author describes the manner in which children are educated in England, how the English spend their time, and the East India Company. The higher classes of society in England educate their children in a totally different manner from that of the people of Hindoostan (of the same rank), where the teacher is retained as a servant in the house, in order that there may be no chance of the influence of the evil eye falling on the child. In England, people of rank usually send both their sons and daughters to a distant place of education. The poor people (of England) send their children to be taught in the town schools, and pay at the rate of a rupee per week. There are separate schools for girls. Both in France and England, the author observed a broad and spacious house, where orphans, and poor boys and girls, are educated. The East India Company consists of thousands of proprietors, but the directors alone manage everything.
