BOWERS (HENRY ROBERTSON, 'Birdie')
Autograph letter signed ("Henry"), to his sister May, recalling his surprise at being treated as an equal by Seniors "If I were aboard her [Northbrook] I would be pretty small spuds, but being the 'Bhamo jahaz ka Captain sahib' makes things very different", and conveying some gossip about Maundrell's fascination with a certain married lady, and Maundrell chaffing Bowers at his fascination for Mrs. Vines " You will think she must be an incorrigable flirt, but far from it...a glance at the Northbroook's officers was quite sufficient to show me that I was not the only one...I never let Mrs. V think I thought more of her than she did of me", 8 pages, on Royal Indian Marine headed paper, 8vo, R.I.M.S. Bhamo, 9 October, 1907
