The Victoria Memorial is well stocked with Daniell prints, and occasionally some lucky fellow managers to unearth one among the secondhand bookshops of College Street.In the High Court may inspect Zoffany’s portrait of Sir Elijah Impey, a portly figure in a red robe, with a blue cummerbund  and with his right hand raised in a kind of archiepiscopal blessing.The Vestry of St John’s eventually had to shift ‘The Last  Supper’ from behind the altar,where it was being attacked by rising damp, to the  Lady Chapel,and there poor Mr Paull still is, fixed forever as Judas,sitting at the front of the table with hand reflectively on his chin, looking very sinister and plotting. And there are only two of the imperial ghosts that are apt to haunt you at almost every turn in Calcutta.
