Notes

  • A handwritten inscription on the flyleaf, signed by the author and dated 22 March 1900, reads "To my dear nephew Percy Milledge, with the hope & prayer that he may have many years of happy and successful work in the country treated[?] of in this book". Sibree's "nephew" Rev Percy Milledge was in fact a man who would become his son-in-law in 1901 when he married Mary Amelia Sibree, daughter of James Sibree. Percy died of typhoid in Ambohitrolomahitsy in 1907, aged just 32, after six years' work as an LMS missionary in Madagascar.
