A Living Man from Africa

This chapter begins with Reverend John Brownlee's arrival at the Cape in January 1817 as a member of the London Missionary Society. Due to the scandal swirling around James Read's infidelity, Brownlee resigned shortly after his arrival. Against the wishes of Brownlee and other newly arrived members of the missionary field, the LMS had not expelled Read from their ranks, but allowed him to continue in his work at Lattakoo, their northernmost station in the colony. The conflict signified a shift in ideology within the LMS in South Africa. The radical evangelism of Van der Kemp and Read, which allowed and even encouraged interaction with the proselytized to the point of marriage, was being replaced by a conservative, culturally chauvinistic, and racially charged ideology that demanded, above all, that its agents adhere to accepted norms of British respectability that would not allow for marriage with Khoisan or African women, and certainly not condone adultery.
