Writer. As wife of Captain Thomas Postans of the Bombay Army, lived some years in India. Contributed to Sharpe's articles on India and stories laid in India; published three books: Cutch; or, Random Sketches, Taken during a Residence in One of the Northern Provinces of Western India, Western India in 1838, and Facts and Fictions, Illustrative of Oriental Character. As Mrs. Young, published Our Camp in Turkey, 1854; Aldershot, and All about It, 1857; The Moslem Noble: His Land and People, 1857. 


In 1854 Mrs. Young submitted two articles to H.W., one on the maladministration of justice in India, one on Malta; Dickens declined them on the ground that the subjects had already been dealt with in H.W. The article that was accepted describes, on the basis of Mrs. Young's own observations, the deplorable conditions under which wives and children of soldiers lived in Aldershot barracks; some of the same details appear in chap. ii of her Aldershot, and All about It. Dickens made some changes in the paper; he found it "Execrably written" (to Wills, April 7 1856: MS Huntington Library).
