Book Condition:   Very Good

Type:   Manuscript

Size:   12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall

Publisher:   BELGIAN CONGO ALBERTVILLE  1906

Seller ID:   0001393

On offer is an original letter, written in English, dated Haut (Upper) Congo, Nov 14th 1906, by an unknown female writer who appears to be the wife of a missionary who was being prosecuted by the Congo Police, (casual research suggest this is possibly the British Reverend Edgar Stannard). The letter specifically refers to implication in the "Commandant Hagström affair..." The tremendous political controversy surrounded a charge of libelling Congo police officer Hagström, made by the Governor General of the Congo Free State and King Leopold, against the Reverend who accused Hagström of practicing brutality and cannibalism. Arthur Conan Doyle also described exploitation and atrocities in his book "The Crime of the Congo."
