    The dedication is signed "Adelaide M. Cockburn.' The author was in charge of the Nursing Home in Sierra Leone for four and a half years. Although most of the recipes make straightforward British fare, some feature local ingredients such as Barracouta (a fish), mangoes and pawpaws, and there are a few unusual recipes such as "Ground nut soup', "Burdwan' and "Pooloot'. LB, LoEN and OB all date this book [1905].
