1. “Bagirmi Chronicle”.

Transl. in Palmer (1928), ii, 108-9.

This appears to be a translation of a written record of what is probably an orally transmitted account of the origin of the Bagirmi Sultanate. It is possible that the original Arabic text will be found among H.R. Palmer’s papers at Jos in Nigeria.
