An Account of the Autobiographical Memoir of Morena Abraham Aaron Moletsane: We have received an interesting little book with the above title, from Captain R. S. Webb, of Paarl, South Africa, A fellow of the society from 1916 to 1932; and recipient of the Gill Memorial in 1952. The 'Memoir' of the title is in manuscript, though some of it has been published in southern Sotho in the newspaper Leselinyana la Lesotho (March 1967); and the 'Account' now in the Society’s library is based by Captain Webb on original materials, including letters from Chief Moletsane during 1952-1967.
