    Notes that a 'distinguished explorer of Africa' has reported that 'the Makololos justify cattle-stealing by the argument that those who cannot keep their cattle have no right to them'. Suggests a comparison between the Makololos and the M'Gregors discussed in Scott 1818, and wonders if Makololos should be spelt M'Cullolo. Concludes by arguing that a supposed 'connection between the Land of the Cakes and the Land of Negroes is corroborated by the fact that Scotland, as well as Africa, abounds in Blackies'.
