A Bayard From Bengal

(1902)
A novel by

 
A laudable nobleman, Chunder Bindabun Bhosh, ESQ., B.A., journeys from his country India to England, with his perfect English and demeanors, which instantly make him as a foreigner, and boards on a privileged series of adventures. These tales are the sum of the productive imaginings of Hurry Bungsho Jabberjee, B.A., a pen name for the comedian F. Anstey, which is a more fictitious name for Thomas Anstey Guthrie. Whether saving a bridal lady from a desperate bull or get charmed with the said bridal lady, Mr. Bosh, B. A. cannot avoid but act with the indispensable fun to draw our imagination.

A Bayard from Bengal consists of these stories: From Calcutta to Cambridge Oversea Route; How Mr Bhosh Delivered a Damsel from a Demented Cow; The Involuntary Fascinator; A Kick from a Friendly Foot; The Duel to the Death; Lord Jolly is Satisfied; The Adventure of the Unwieldy Gifthorse; A Rightabout Facer for Mr Bhosh; The Dark Horse; Trust Her Not! She is Fooling Thee!; Stone Walls Do Not Make a Cage; A Race Against Time; A Sensational Derby Struggle; A Grand Finish.

Thomas Anstey Guthrie was a British author and journalist, who wrote his humor stories with his pen name F. Anstey.

He was from Kensington, London, to Augusta Amherst Austen, an organist and composer, and Thomas Anstey Guthrie. He attended the King's College School and at Trinity Hall, Cambridge, and became a lawyer. But his popularity of his story Vice Versa with its twists and turns of the swap of a father for his schoolboy son, has made him a comedian of a genuine kind. He then wrote a non-comical story, The Giant's Robe; but he learned, and again with The Pariah, that it was not as a staid writer but as a comedian that the people averred on considering him.
