A Living Man from Africa

This chapter describes the search for Tzatzoe, which led John Philip to the Kuruman mission station. After looking in the old mission church, the modern archive and classroom building, the visitors' center, the outbuilding that housed the original mission printing press, and the mission gardens, Jan Tzatzoe ended up being in the last place anyone would care to look. He rested in a dark and well-shaded corner of the airy mission house, about four hundred miles from home. He stood next to an elderly James Read and James Read Junior. Tzatzoe, however, appeared remarkably different; he was not the Tzatzoe Philip had come to know from a black-and-white engraving. The magnificent oil painting, resplendent in a burnished gold frame, by Room of the London Missionary Society delegation from South Africa has been at Kuruman since 1990, when in a fit of good spirit, the current incarnation of the LMS decided to repatriate it to South Africa.
