From 'With a Show Through Southern Africa', by Charles du Val (vol.1 p.244).
The account of wagon driver 'Cock' Jones, as related to du Val in 1880:

"He told me the story of his escape from the Intombe, and flavoured his description with an amount of strong language which might by fastidious people be considered more forcible than polite, but which is somewhat in vogue in South Africa - of how he jumped out of one side of the [blank] waggon, with no [blank] clothing but that which is generally put on first and taken off last - how his partner took the other side, and was assegaied at once - how he hid up to his neck in a mud-hole; and all his hair-breadth 'scapes from the [blank]ed Zulus, and how he'd be [blank]ed if he ever gave 'em another [blank] chance of the same kind - with several other blanks that the reader can fill at his own pleasure, and to his own taste".

Regard,
Lee
