The memoirs of Laurence Guillemard, Governor of the Straits Settlements and High Commissioner of the Federated Malay States from 1920-1927. A significant portion of this book is dedicated to his life in Malaya (more than a third of the book), in which he describes the region as well as the administrative and constitutional issues that he dealt with, such as:

“The colony officials spoke with humorous tolerance of the men in the states as wild denizens of the jungle, whose ideas of business were amateurish and childish.
The men in the states regarded their brothers in the colony as pedantic and narrow-minded bureaucrats who spent their days on office-stools penning tiresome and often unnecessary minutes.”
