This is a fertile, well-watered country of South Africa, on the Indian Ocean, and forms a part of the region known as Kaffraria. The native Zulus are a fine warlike people of the Bantu stock, speaking the Bantu language. This language extends over more than half of Africa and is one of great beauty and flexibility. The Zulu bids fair to be as forward in civilization as he has been in war. Our group represents the Zulus after less than a century of civilization. Worth wins everywhere. Our agent at Cape Town supplies both the European and native inhabitants of Zululand, The Transvaal, and Free Orange State with thousands of Singer machines. — Singer trade card, 1892.
