Ekute-ke ekufikeni kwalo nabafundisi aza amakbsi etu alamkela; nditi-ke ukuzibalisela izihlobo zam:-Kwafika umfundisi ndiyinkwenkwe, bekute ngapambi kokufika komfundisi lowo kwavuka u-Nxele umfo ka-Bhlala, no-Gaba umfo ka-Ntsikana; kwabe ikukuqala kokubona kwam i-Lizwe, endicinga ukuba iminyaka yobupolofeti balomadoda, kususela ku 1816 kuze kulo we 1905, yi 89. Umfundisi wokuqala abesiti ama-Xosa ngu-Sodyoyi wafika wakb, kwa-Sihota. Emva kwake kwafika u Rev. John Brownlee nge 1820. Mandingene ekuqaleni kwam ukuliva i-Lizwi. Kwafika u-Ntsikana evela e-Gqora wafika wema kwa-Mankazana. Wandiq6lisa u-ma ukuya nam etyalikeni, nge-Cawa, kwa-Ntsikana. Ityalike IcaNtsikana ibisenzelwa ngapantsi komqonchi, izitulo ingamatye. Ngeloxesha, ekuboneni kwam, sasingati sintanganye no-Dukwana, u-Kobe emkfilu kunati. Akahlalanga kakulu, u-Ntsikana, kwa.
