Excerpt from Labour in Portuguese West Africa
For an enquiry of this nature, among foreigners in a distant colony, relying mostly on private hospitality, and in which the inquirer is always open to the charge of being a business spy, it seemed desirable to seek the assistance of a private individual, rather than anyone with former knowledge of, or connection with the cocoa business. Mr. Joseph Burtt offered his services, and for. Several months lived in Portugal studying the language: he has many friends in that country and in the colonies, and except on one occasion his integrity and fairness have never been challenged. In November, 1907, a few of the planters in Lisbon issued broadcast a lengthy document con taining the wildest charges against the integrity of: Mr. Burtt, and the motives of the British cocoa makers. At a meeting held shortly afterwards in Lisbon, at which Mr. Burtt and I were present, the personal charges were disproved and with drawn, and other statements, as incorrect as ridicu lous, consigned wholesale to oblivion. I am glad to say that, with this trifling exception, our rela tions with many of. The owners and producers in S. Thome have been and continue to be friendly.
