South African Sketches. Plate II. The Revd Mr Moffat Preaching to the Bechuana

The Reverend Moffat was an important and well known Scottish protestant missionary working in Africa for the London Missionary Society. He was fluent in the Bechuana language Tswana, a language in which he had translated both the catechism and the New Testament and in which he would almost certainly have been delivering the lecture depicted in this print. Charles Bell accompanied Sir Andrew Smith on his 1834-1836 expedition into the 'Interior' and it was during this expedition that Bell and Smith met Moffat and saw him at work. This lithotint would probably have been done from sketches and/ or memory after Bell returned to Scotland in 1847.
