Mrs. Leslie (1859-1943) was born Lonie Blanche Jerome and married John "Jack" Leslie of the Grenadier Guards in 1884. She became Lady Leslie when her husband succeeded to his father's baronetcy in 1916. She travelled to India in 1902 with the Duke of Connaught's party on H.M.S. Renown, receiving a telegram from Lady Curzon on her arrival. The telegram is pasted as frontispiece in the album facing a watercolour of the Renown signed and dated D'Esposito 1902. The autograph signatures include those of Prince Arthur, Princess Louise Margaret, the Grand Duke of Hesse, Lord and Lady Curzon and Lord Kitchener
Photographs document her participation at the coronation celebrations, hunting trips, visits to Gwalior, Bhurtpore, Jaipur, Bikauer, Agra, Aden and Malta and include informal snapshot portraits of members of her party as well as Indian royalty and dignitaries.
The timetable of the Royal party's official progress through Inida and the official guide to the ceremonial events attending the Coronation Durbar, and the Durbar itself, together with Mrs Leslie's photgraph album present a remarkable picture of the Royal party's progress through India.
