    • 1899 April 8, “Notes”, in Saturday Review[1], volume 87, number 2267, →ISSN, →OCLC, page 418, column 1:
      The French have been having a great deal of trouble at Djibouti with a tribe of the interior, the Issas, who are vehemently opposed to the progress of the railway through their country. Throughout the first half of March, raids were incessant on parties in and about the town itself. A detachment of marines was sent out and restored peace, at all events for the moment. In the meantime fifty Hausas from the Ivory Coast are on their way to form a nucleus of a permanent garrison at Djibouti, and their sergeant is no less a person than Koulery the brother of Behanzin late King of Dahomey.
