During this time, mail to Zanzibar was sent to the British Political Agent Captain Haines at Aden. As there was no scheduled service from Aden to Zanzibar, the agent would send the envelope via any convenient ship going down the East African coast. There are seventeen recorded items in the Kuhlmann correspondence. Ex Richard Knight.
