Colonel Dodge recalled of this visit:

“In 1906, the Prince Sayajiras, Gaekwar of Baroda, and the Princess visited us. In my conversation with this distinguished prince of India, I learned that he was acquainted with Dr. Wynkoop, Secretary of the English Bible Society, who had married a cousin of mine. Hearing this, the Princess unexpectedly drew from under her gorgeous shawl a small camera with which she took a picture that later she delivered to my relative.”
