The photographer who "took" Cetywayo gives a very amusing account of the process "On Saturday morning the steamer was rolling too much to be sure of success. We however, were obliged to do the best possible under the circumstance. Having placed everything in readiness, we informed the King, through his interpreter, that we were ready, and received the answer that the King was going to sleep," and did not wish to be disturbed. After a while we could hear him speak, BO we once more informed him that we were waiting for him. He did not seem inclined to appear, and Captain Poole thought it best to give him some induce- ment to do so, which was accomplished by catching a fish. This made him come out at once, and after some palaver the King was persuaded to seat himself near the compass, with his back against the rudder wheel. He appeared to be very nervous, and requested that it might be done at once in order to have it over. He seemed to dread the camera, and did not like the look of the lens. We succeeded, how- ever, in getting our first double negative. He was more at ease when he found that it was done without his being hurt, but, in order to show him what we were doing, Commander Caffyn showed him a photo of Dabulamanzi, at which he seemed pleased, and at once disencumbered himself of his blanket to show his figure, of which he appears to be very proud. We succeeded in taking a second double negative, and then he sternly refused to have any more taken. We were at that time not certain of success, as the ship was rolling, it was raining all the while, and our negatives were finished only partially, in order to obtain as many negatives as possible while the King was in a good mood. After that came the King's wives; they ap- peared eager to be photographed, and after they had been placed in position, wa requested the King to sit in the centre of the group, which he declined to do, saying that he had to undergo it alone, and they would have to do the same. Upon his being told that we wished to have him in the middle, he answered that we could cut the photos, and then place him wherever we liked. He would not sit again, so we contented ourselves with taking two more double negatives of his wives while he was smoking his cigarette, and this finished our day's work, leaving the King on deck trying his hand at fish-catching.
