In 1880, for instance, he spent nearly seven months in London studying for his second mate's certificate; in 1886 he spent several months there studying for, and taking (twice) the examination for, his master's certificate; and in 1891 he was intermittently in London - partly in hospital, recovering from the effects of his visit to the Congo, and partly working in a warehouse.

His sense of humour, indeed, was far greater than one might think from his work. ' GARNETT, Edward ( 1868-1937), critic and man ofletters. As reader for the publisher Fisher Unwin, in 1894 he recommended the publication of A/mayer's Folly.
