Scope and Content

Rear of volume contains Chapman's journal from May 1895 until August 1896 beginning with his arrival at Palachwe and ending during a pay dispute with his 'boys' [at Nanzhila, Zambia]. With notes (written later) on the mission and local people as well as extracts from letters.

The volume appears to have been originally created to contain Chapman's poetry (written between 1886 and 1891). After these he has added a glossary of words for Mashukulumbwe and Mash[ona] [Shona] with English equivalents, an account of the 'boys' wages for 1898 to 1900 and notes on mission activities in Central Africa in 1880s and 1890s.
