African Encounters with Domesticity

By Karen Tranberg Hansen | Go to book overview
5.
J. Read, Lattakoo, 14 March 1817 ( CWM, LMS South African Journals, 3). Note that the Tlhaping were the southernmost Tswana people.
6.
This is not an isolated case; mission archives are filled with similar accounts. See, for just one further example, R. Hamilton, Lattakoo, 15 May 1817 ( CWM, LMS Incoming Letters [ South Africa], 7-1-C).
7.
J. Archbell, Platberg, 2 September 1833 ( WMMS, South Africa Correspondence [ Albany], 303); Livingstone ( 1857,21).
8.
J. Archbell, Cradock, 23 May 1831 ( WMMS, South Africa Correspondence [ Albany], 303).
9.
T. Hodgson, Matlwassie, 12 January 1824 ( WMMS, South Africa Correspondence, 300).
10.
See also A. Wookey, Kuruman, 23 May, 1884 ( CWM, LMS Incoming Letters [ South Africa], 42-3-C). J. Mackenzie, Kuruman, 17 February 1882 ( CWM, LMS South Africa Reports, 2-1) details how farmers unable to irrigate were being displaced by the "wealthy" who could.
11.
J. Hughes, Lattakoo, 17 December 1824 ( CWM Archives, LMS South Africa Journals, 4).
12.
See, e.g., Lichtenstein ([ 1807] 1973,67); Campbell ( 1822,2:219); Hughes ( 1841:523); Mackenzie ( 1883); Moffat ( 1842,502f).
13.
Hebdige ( 1988,21) makes a similar point, but does not annotate it.
14.
The circulation of some missionary texts was very substantial indeed; for example, Brantlinger ( 1985,176) notes that Livingstone's Missionary Travels ( 1857) sold 70,000 copies in just a few months.
15.
Dickens's object was not to draw an unflattering parallel between the English poor and savage Africans. He sought to call attention to the dreadful conditions under which the former were forced to live.
16.
A point is in order here. As Stedman Jones ( 1971,part III) correctly points out, late nineteenth-century writings on the predicament of the casual poor in London underwent several transformations--largely as a product of rapidly changing social and economic conditions. For present purposes, however, these transformations are not directly significant. The bourgeois ideology of domesticity did not change much over the period; nor did the efforts of middle-class reformers and missionaries to reconstruct the home life of the poor.
