      This text is based entirely on the diaries of political officers who served the Gold Coast Colony and Protectorate in the early years of imperial rule. It gives a graphic, often amusing first-hand account of the "daily round" of administration, including the administration of justice, tax collection, solving disputes, life on trek in bush and forest, relations with chiefs and with ordinary. When we took Vaughan and Kirk-Greene's () publication of Hamman Yaji's diary to Sukur in , everyone who could read wanted to read it and everyone else wanted it read to n and Kirk-Greene's book is the definitive source but in we photocopied the original in the Nigerian National Archives Kaduna and later had it transcribed.
