caught short

 
The following letter was sent to a Railway Superintendent in West Bengal in 1909, graphically describing the inconvenience of railway station toilet stops.

Dear Sir,

I am arrive by passenger train at Ahmedpore station, and my belly is too much full of jack fruit. I am therefore went to privy. Just as I doing the nuisance, that guard making whistle blow for train to go off and I am running with lotah in one hand and dhotie in the next hand. I am fall over and expose my shockings to man, females, woman on platform. I am get leaved at Ahmedpore station.

This too much bad, if passenger go to make dung, that dam guard no wait train 5 minutes for him. I am therefore pray your honour to make big fine on guard for public sake, otherwise I am making big report to papers.

your faithful servant
