After the death of his father the family estates were confiscated, and he was likewise deprived of his captaincy and his governorship.

I say shortsighted; for it is obvious that, were the resources of the country once fairly opened, the people on the coast would double or triple their present incomes, and Zanzibar would soon swell into a place of real importance.
