Footnotes

  • Captain Harris, an officer in the East India Company's Bombay Engineers, was invalided to the Cape for two years, 1835-1837. In 1836, after conferring with Dr. Andrew Smith, he and Richard Williamson set off from Algoa Bay, by way of Somerset and the Orange River and travelled in a north-easterly direction until they reached the kraals of the famous Matabele chief Moselikatze. He proved friendly and allowed them to return via a previously closed route. The present work was based around his sketches of the game and wild animals he encountered on his travels.
