\'During the first fifty years of Dutch colonisation at the Cape of Good Hope many travellers arrived in Table Bay, on their way to the East: some came voluntarily, others by force of circumstance. They came ashore, looked around, observed strange indigenous people, interesting plants and animals; they visited the little settlement, met the local personalities, wondered at the way-of-life. They also consulted and negotiated with the Dutch Officials, and sought help in their difficulties. And, most frequently they recorded their impressions...\'. Editor\'s note.
