Abstract:The article introduces the 'Journal' of Harriett Low, a substantial section of which was written in the Cape (South Africa) from 12 January 1834 to 4 May 1834. A brief summary of the 'Journal's main preoccupations is given, and then Low's presentation of Cape fauna and flora and landscape, the Cape Dutch, and slavery, is considered in greater detail. Low's identity as a young American woman who had spent several years in Macao (China) offers a fresh perspective on the Cape in 1834. Bibliogr., notes, ref., sum. [Journal abstract]
