Two quotes:

“Leniency is weakness with the vulgar and ignorant, and in future dealings with the native Africans England would do well to remember this.” Henry Morton Stanley, Coomassie and Magdala, London 1874 (p28)

“. . . the British Government should send 500 sets of slave chains, and bind these runaways into gangs of fifties, each controlled by a non-commissioned officer with a long whip . . .”Henry Morton Stanley, Coomassie and Magdala, London 1874 (p28)
