This chapter discusses the colonization of Xhosaland, in which a reordering of Xhosa society was vital. While the plans for Queen Adelaide Province were being finalized in September and October 1835, Jan Tzatzoe remained in the colony. In the meantime, in London, events had been in motion that would dramatically alter D'Urban and Smith's plan. After ten years of combat for the deliverance of the Negro, the leader of the humanitarian movement in Great Britain, Sir Thomas Fowell Buxton, shifted his attention from the recently victorious abolitionist cause toward a crusade against the deleterious effects that British civilization appeared to have been having on the indigenous inhabitants and neighbors of its colonies. Buxton's friend, John Philip, had been documenting the plight of the Cape Colony's aboriginal peoples as the strengthening tide of British and Dutch settlement had coursed into the interior of the continent.
