The Littlest Diplomat (1937)
At an outpost near Peshawar, gruff Colonel Hardwick wants to put down the local rebellious Khan with bullets and bayonets, but the British government wants to try diplomacy, so Sir Harmon, the civilian leader, orders Hardwick to make no belligerent moves. The outpost is paid an unannounced visit by Sybil Hardwick, the colonel's granddaughter. The charming Sybil, an orphan of about seven, is strong-willed, so when her grandfather orders her to stay in her room, she leaves through the window. She's soon picked up by the Khan's men. The colonel defies Sir Harmon and rides with his men toward the Khan's encampment intent on shooting up the place and rescuing Sybil. A surprise awaits.- Written by <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Young Sybil visits her grandfather, a British Colonel stationed at a garrison in India, and she helps negotiate a diplomatic truce between him and the local natives.- Written by email@example.com
