Mentzel (“Life of Alleman,” p. 138, V.R.S., vol. 2) makes the following remark about L.: ”He was married but he could not get on with his wife. They were both excellent people but their dispositions would not harmonise. So they separated, and the man obtained the Governor's permission to leave the Cape and return to his native place.”
