Anglo-Indian Conference at Jubbulpore

Civil & Military Gazette 
January 4 1886

Key quote: "That while for some reason the term 'Anglo-Indian' is adapted to the domiciled community, and is the best single title that could be applied to them, yet because it is not sufficiently comprehensive and expressive, and has been strongly objected to on that score 'Eurasian and Anglo-Indian' forms the most suitable title, and should be used in naming distinctive associations, &C." 

Also interesting to see references to railway jobs, which as we know were often where Eurasians worked. Also interesting to see references to differing complexions amongst Eurasians:
