Nyasaland and Northern Rhodesia were raw, and their peoples primitive in the extreme. In his native Scotland was Miss Margaret Davidson, his fiancee, who later became his wife and the loved companion of his days, both in Central Africa and throughout the years in Lovedale. As the opportunity offered and as mails permitted he described his environment and his life from day to day, and communicated to her, as possibly to no other in his lifetime, his inner thoughts. It is a piece of rare good fortune that a large quantity of these letters have come tolight and that permission to publish them was so readily given.” - from th e dj.
