The German Colonial Handbook 1908 mentions the firm of "Lada Perdan" as a merchant in Iringa in 1908.

According to John Illiffe (see below), 1000 Indians & family followed German settler, Capt. Tom Prince to Iringa in 1898. But the the German Colonial Handbook Supplement 1904 omits this fact. So Ladha Pardhan & his brother Somji Pardhan may have arrived earlier but are first recorded as being there in 1908.
