The author was Chief commissioner in British Kaffraria. Mendelssohn regards this work as one of the best on its subject. "The geography, government, laws, and customs of the natives are fully described ... The genealogical tables assist in explaining the somewhat complex system of Kaffir laws of inheritance and descent, and a census of British Kaffraria in 1857 in appended" (Mendelssohn).
