Embedded text or transcriptSerious perturbation has been occasioned by Mr. Gandhi's repeated statement that he will wear his usual Indian dress if invited to dine in High Quarters during his visit to London. It is said that Lord Cromer, Sir Derek Keppel, Sir Frederick Ponsonby, Viscount Gage, Lord Templemore and others, seeking to preserve our traditional tact and courtesy in a delicate situation, are reluctantly being measured for loin-cloths.
