Mrs. Jean Knappett, 80, daughter of the US novelist, Agnes Keith, paid a visit to Sabah in August 2007 at the invitation of the state government. Accompanied by her daughter, Leslie Sellers, Mrs. Knappett visited the restored bungalow in Ernestina Road (now Jalan Istana) where Mrs. Keith had lived with her husband, Harry, before the Second World War. Born in Sandakan, Mrs. Knappett had lived there with her parents until she went overseas to further her studies. This was her first return trip to her birthplace since then. She was "really happy about the restoration efforts at the Kinabatangan river to enable the elephants to move easily" (BBO M.20.8.2007).
