"In 1887 Ropes, the American ivory trader, complained bitterly that business bad gone rotten. He railed against the Zanzibar cutthroats: ‘P Dossa, Nassir Lila, Salie Jacksie, Peera Dewjie, Seewar Hadjie & Musa.. .all a set of rushing, failing, cheating, swindling gamblers, buying anything &C everything for luck.' "
