Fortunate folks, - no.4: Robert Louis the first of Samoa
A fanciful image of Robert Louis Stevenson being held aloft by a group of dancing Samoans. Stevenson is depicted wearing a dark suit and holding a cigarette. The Samoans all have white robes on and the women are carrying long garlands of flowers. Palm leaves are also being held aloft. The image is entitled "Fortunate folks, - no.4: Robert Louis the first of Samoa" and the text underneath reads "The latest Australian papers leave no room for doubt that by general consent Mr Stevenson is now regarded as the first citizen of Samoa, and if events should develop in the direction of the choice of a ruler by the popular will, the author of "Treasure Island" would assuredly head the poll".
