Sir Henry Hesketh Joudou Bell

After Nigheria, Bell returned to the Caribbean, serving as the governor of the Leeward Islands and then Mauritius from 1916. Once again he was able to demonstrate his skill in fostering economic development, and he took a frank pleasure in the trappings of his office.

He wrote 10 books on his journeys and on the role of witchcraft including:

Foreign Colonial Administration in the Far East

Obeah; Witchcraft in the West Indies

Witches and Fishes
