Description: 
Shows sultan paying his tax and the tax of the tribe to Verstappen. The men outside are sitting in rows. Dark - taken from inside the house and showing only the profile, in the fore. Started from M'sala at daylight and rowed into Nyanza, where we found a few Arabian traders, a Greek trader and a Belgian official - a fine fellow - in charge of many interesting native tribes. Rene Verstappen, chef de poste, Nyanza. [Shantz travel journal, Feb. 25, 1920]
