This is a lithograph of plate 11 from Emily Eden's 'Portraits of the Princes and People of India'. The Nawab of Oudh (Avadh) often allowed the Governor-General, Lord Auckland, to use his hawks and dogs when the latter was passing through the Lucknow area. Eden wrote: "He proffers the aid of his elephants, his kitchen, or whatever may be likely to be useful or agreeable. His establishment of dogs and hawks follows the Governor-General while they may be required; and though the sport may be tame to European notions, the good feeling of the King in sending them is always cordially welcomed and acknowledged."
