Evidence

"I had a treat in the shape of a number of the ""Singapore Free Press"" 2 and a half columns about ""Mr Conrad at home and abroad"". extremely laudatory but in fact telling me I don"t know anything about it. Well I never did set up as an authority on Malaysia. I looked for a medium in which to express myself. I am inexact and ignorant no doubt (most of us are) but I don"t think I sinned so recklessly. Curiously enough all the details about the little characteristic acts and customs which they hold up as proof I have taken out (to be safe) from undoubted sources--dull,wise books."

Notes
According to fn.2 p.130 of source text, Conrad was not aware at the time that the article was by Hugh Clifford whose book ""Studies in Brown Humanity"" he had read and reviewed for the ""Academy"" (see letter to C.L. Hind 16th April 1898 p.57 of source text). Norman Sherry in ""Conrad's Eastern World"" (1971) devotes a whole chapter (pp.139-170) to the 'dull wise books' that he read as background for his South East Asia stories.
