Excerpt from The Relief of Kumasi: With Sixteen Illustrations and Plans and a Map

O save people unnecessary trouble is a sound maxim to follow, and specially advisable on such an occa sion as this. Life is nowadays too short to learn all one could wish: consequently, I may be forgiven, by those who know West Africa, if I state a few of the geographical and historical facts which, I venture to think, are necessary to enable the reader to intelligently follow the course of events in this Ashanti War of 1900. At the same time, I hope these particulars will help to interest him the more in the narrative of what occurred, as given in the subsequent chapters.

The West African colonies, with which we are now concerned, extend from French Senegambia down to the German Cameroons. The first one touched at, on the outward-bound voyage, is Sierra Leone, between which and the Gold Coast are Liberia and the French Ivory Coast. Liberia is the republic which was formed by the freed slaves from the United States, and the Yankee accent is very noticeable there to-day.
