General Information:

Llewellin - NFD 1914 - Wajir - " Here I found "Skipper" Dick awaiting me, on August 8th. He was then Officer in Charge of the NFD and had sent Butler to the Garreh District, and owing to my inexperience he had to stay with me to induct me into the problems of administration, which I fear rather cramped his style as O I/c.
