He had completed it to a period a little beyond the time o£ his baptism, and was contemplating a furtherinstalment when he died. His friend, the Rev. Andrew Mkochi, completed the story for me. I have rewritten in English what they have told me in their own language, and have added a certain amount of background to their pictures, so as to make them more intelligible to readers at home. I have followed their account of events, and especially Daniel's own story of his youth and mental awakening.” - from the Author's Note.
