Lander - Endebess -  "The Winters had been in Kenya for 30 years. This was the first farm at which I had stayed, and it was here that I found what charming people farmers and their wives were. There was fine silver, cut glass, an elegant hostess, and all the comforts of civilized life. The Air Mail edition of The Times, magazines and the radio kept these people up to date with all the affairs of the world. Jimmy Winter worked hard, out every morning by 7am busy maintaining the high standard of this large farm which he had built up himself. In the evening he looked most dapper in his velvet smoking jacket, when, with the ladies also changed for dinner, we relaxed."
