important , as on it we read the facts of life why the native has succeeded. , or why he
has failed. From it we also see what use he has made of his talents and opportunities.
We see the favourable growth of character, or retrogression, the development of
hereditary tendencies, or the arrest of these improvement in health or the reverse. By
the right hand also we can in a measure judge what the future is likely to bring forth.
