When my convivial host discovered that he had told me so much, and that I was prone to doubtfulness, his foolish pride assumed the task the old vintage had commenced, and so he unearthed written evidence in the form of musty manuscript, and dry official records of the British Colonial Office to support many of the salient features of his remarkable narrative.
The yellow, mildewed pages of the diary of a man long dead, and the records of the Colonial Office dovetail perfectly with the narrative of my convivial host, and so I give you the story as I painstakingly pieced it out from these several various agencies.
From the records of the Colonial Office and from the dead man's diary we learn that a certain young English nobleman, whom we shall call John Clayton, Lord Greystoke, was commissioned to make a peculiarly delicate investigation of conditions in a British West Coast African Colony from whose simple native inhabitants another European power was known to be recruiting soldiers for its native army, which it used solely for the forcible collection of rubber and ivory from the savage tribes along the Congo and the Aruwimi.
And so the Colonial Office appointed John Clayton to a new post in British West Africa, but his confidential instructions centered on a thorough investigation of the unfair treatment of black British subjects by the officers of a friendly European power.
Political ambition had caused him to seek transference from the army to the Colonial Office and so we find him, still young, entrusted with a delicate and important commission in the service of the Queen.
We need not only men of acknowledged bravery, but men of administrative talents to superintend the affairs of our colonies, and we have no doubt that the gentleman selected by the Colonial Office to fill the lamented vacancy which has occurred at Coventry Island is admirably calculated for the post which he is about to occupy."
In another office transaction, Wisniewski assisted in leasing 4,600 square feet of space in a modern colonial office building in downtown Somerville to First Response Ambulance Corporation.
(36) Public Record Office, "State of the Island of Tobago, 1775," Colonial Office 101/18.
Moreover, the Colonial Office began to encourage decentralized, grassroots participation through the organization or restructuring of local councils, labor unions, and cooperatives.
In 1948, he became manager of the giant Oakdale mine, and two years later was posted to Nigeria by the Colonial Office, who were trying to quell riots in the country's mines.
The New South Wales government responded with indignation when it discovered what had happened, (7) refused to passively accept the reduced claim, established a Select Committee of its Legislative Council to inquire into the matter, and the affair degenerated into an imbroglio that put considerable stress on relations between the Foreign Office, the Colonial Office, and New South Wales.
