Author's introduction: 'The following pages are the result of an extensive study of the records available on the subject, combined with much valuable information supplied to me chiefly by educated Natives, Missionaries, and a large number of others, such as some of the cape Civil Servants, who had to deal with the aborigine in the early days of European occupation of the country. To all of whom I wish to record my best thanks, more especially to Mr. W. Hammond Tooke for the Chapter on the Bantu Nation; Mr Andrew Smith, of St. Cyrus, for assisting in gathering information, and for his valuable assistance in the preparing of the Chapter on the Herb Treatment of Disease; Mr. W.C. Scully, of the Cape Civil Service; and to Mr. J. M'tombeni, Native Teacher, for gathering and editing much valuable information from among the Kaffirs.' .
