    Excerpt from Streams in the Desert: A Picture of Life in Livingstonia

    I gratefully acknowledge my deep obligation to the Hon. Dr. Laws and others, his colleagues, whose long and intimate knowledge of things African, freely placed at my disposal, enabled me to see and under stand much that would otherwise have passed un observed or remained a sealed book. Especially to Dr. Chisholm of Mwenzo, my companion on many a tangled path and by many a camp-fire in the remotest wilds, I am indebted for such insight as I gained into the inwardness of African village life. For a stranger to travel in these regions, unfamiliar with the language of the people, unacquainted with their in dividual names and histories, ignorant of what is passing round him - the humour of the carriers, the gossip of the villagers, the meaning of tribal cus toms - is to travel blind. As well might one imagine that the life of London could be adequately seen from the twopenny tube. If I was in any measure saved from this misfortune it is mainly due to the knowledge and courtesy of my friend the Doctor.
