A very good set of Sutherland's two published works, Original Matters being an author's presentation copy: ?With Col Sutherland's best regards.? Sutherland, whilst on leave from India, travelled throughout the North-Eastern districts of South Africa compiling information from his own observations and from his discussions with the resident Agents. As a result he was able to put together ?a body of evidence. which may be of use to any person who may hereafter become the historian of the condition of the aborigines in South Africa.? (Mendelssohn). The Memoir is a ?valuable compilation based on Moodie's Records and the works of many of the early writers on South African matters.? The third volume, Original Matter ?eliminates much of the matter included in the Memoir, and contains some additions taken from the author's notes.? Mendelssohn II, pp453-4.
