Chapter Summary

Jules Nicolas Henri Gaden returned to St. Louis on 7th March 1912 having spent less than a year in France. The letters of April 1913 were the first Henri Gouraud had written for about one year, and the death of Gerhardt was the reason why he took up his pen again. He demanded to know more details about the loss of his fellow officer. One last letter prior to the outbreak of the First World War was written by Gaden to Gouraud on 13th April 1914. Gouraud had written earlier to Gaden to congratulate him on his promotion in February 1914 to the rank of Chief Administrator. In the period between his return to West Africa and the outbreak of the Great War, Gaden dedicated himself to scholarship, in particular to his linguistic studies of Pulaar, the language of the people of the Senegal River Valley.
