Pritchard's words and actions need mean no more than realisation that the light-hearted and apparently invulnerable Mrs. Bathurst must have suffered deeply in the affair, whatever its details.   From the Masjid-al-aqsa of Sayyid Ahmed (Wahabi) -- The captive -- Poseidon's law -- The bonds of discipline -- The runner -- A sahibs' war -- The wet litany -- "Their lawful occasions", part I -- "Their lawful occasions", part II -- The king's task -- The comprehension of Private Cooper -- The necessitarian -- Steam tactics -- Kaspar's song in Cited by:

Mrs. Golightly and Other Stories (Book): Wilson, Ethel: "The eighteen pieces collected in Mrs. Golightly and Other Stories bring together the many and subtle voices of Ethel Wilson, demonstrating her extraordinary range as a writer.

"Mrs. Bathurst" incorporates central aspects of Kipling's fiction, including his use of dialect, his complex structure of composition, and his fascination with the sea.

The critical reception of the story was enthusiastically positive, though critics have been confused by certain elements.
