Title: Every Day Life on a Ceylon Cocoa Estate (1905) Author: Mary E Steuart (c1832-1920)
The solar eclipse mentioned dates the visit to Ceylon to be from the autumn of 1897 to the spring of 1899, though from the use of later statistics some of the account must have been written up a couple of years afterwards.
The book mentioned in the preface is "Two Happy Years in Ceylon"  by Constance Frederica Gordon-Cumming [1837-1924].
The pound sterling symbol is represented as L, italicisations for emphasis are rendered with underscores, and proper fractions are given as decimals. Minimal corrections to the punctuation, spelling and typography have been made silently, but the erratic spelling of 'coolie' and 'cooly' has been left, as has the erratic spelling of 'cocoa' and 'cacao' for the plant, and the erratic occasional use of capitalisation for words such as Appu, Lines & Planter.
