'...the bow, quiver of arrows & the two Rhinoceros horns with loop of skin attached ... belong to Somali hunters who come from Italian Somaliland into British East Africa to hunt Elephants & Rhinoceroses ... The arrows are very beautifully made & are poisoned with a poison which is obtained from a tree & when fresh is really very fatal... There is also a small horn full of poison...'
