Notes

An autobiography covering the years, 1901-09, 1917-20 and 1932-35 in German East Africa, later Tanganyika Territory. The author has changed some details to protect the people he has befriended, as 'despite sincere official intentions and assurances, the natives everywhere... are at the mercy of petty white administrators, and of native chiefs who are only too ready to harass and oppress their countrymen in order to curry the white man's favour and rewards' (Preface).
