They bought gifts of cloths, scarves, and stone and metal work. The Tashi Lama himself handed the Prince an ivory-hilted dagger. In the afternoon the Prince and Princess attended a great popular fete in the Maidan. Buddhist priests offered an address. A choir of Bengali musicians then sang a Bengali song of welcome.
