Excerpt from George Grenfell and the Congo, Vol. 1 of 2: A History and Description of the Congo Independent State and Adjoining Districts of Congoland, Together With Some Account of the Native Peoples and Their Languages, the Fauna and Flora; And Similar Notes on the Cameroons and the Island of Fernando Po The In accomplishing my task - one of unusual difficulty - I have received the most valuable assistance from the Rev. Lawson Forfeitt, b.m.s. Secretary on the Congo, and for many years a colleague and close personal friend of George Grenfell. Besides his individual researches he has Opened up many avenues of information among his colleagues and friends, and has thus brought to light new languages and new aspects of Congo problems. Next in importance to Mr. Forfeitt's help has been that of Mr. Emil Torday, a Hungarian traveller well known for his remarkable ethnographical collections and reports on the south-western section of the Congo basin. I cannot speak too appreciatively of Mr. Torday's assistance, which has been rendered not only out Of admiration for Grenfell's work as an explorer, but also with a desire to enable me to place before the world as large a collection as possible of precise information regarding native habits and customs on the Congo. Mr. Torday was able repeatedly to elucidate and amplify such of Grenfell's notes as might otherwise have remained Obscure or inexplicable. Grenfell of course inserted these notes merely as a reminder to himself some day to deal with the question. Or he would sum up the heads of a subject in a few words, which would have remained almost unmeaning (unless he had lived to translate them) without the additional evidence that Mr. Torday was able to place at my disposal.
