    Notes 
    • 'I remember my father had 17 servants at Mackinnon House. An Appu who ran the servants and house. I still have the silver leaf on which he carried the mail to my mother each morning. My father had his personal dresser who laid out his clothes, ran his bath carefully testing the temperature of the water, squeezed the toothpaste on to his toothbrush, tied his shoe laces, helped him on with his jacket and brushed it. His dresser also waited at table. There was a house coolie who cleaned the house and waited at table. A varsocute cleaned all the loos and a nanny did the washing and ironing. There was a cook and podien (small boy helper who prepared everything for cooking and washed up). Four gardeners looked after the extensive grounds and two sisi boys (horse boys) tended the stables and groomed the horses. There was also a driver and all the servants lined up outside the front door each morning to watch the Master of the house climb into the back of the car to be driven to the office. It all sounds OTT now but thats how it was in those days. Father was called Master, Mother was Lady, my brother was Little Master and I was Missy.' [EJT, Oct 2010]
