"Diamond Harbour is the story of a boy who like all boys of his age, comes 'trailing clouds of glory.' These, in Dick's case, centre round the enchantment of Diamond Harbour, & the chain of love which links him to his Grandpa, the old pilot who once took him there. Parents & cousins, uncles & aunts, grannies & friends play their part, as always, in this boy's daily travel 'further from the East' ; and the impact of experience & the worldly problems which demand his solution are depicted here against an authentic backcloth of India as it was in 1909."
