The Absent-Minded Beggar was a poem written in 1899 by Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) as part of an appeal by the Daily Mail to raise money for soldiers fighting in the Boer War (1899-1902).  Sullivan was approached to set it to music, which he did in four days, in November 1899.  The illustration on the cover is A Gentleman in Khaki by Richard Caton Woodville Jr (1856-1927) painted specially to support the appeal.

The British Expedition to Abyssinian took place in 1867-8.  Emperor Tewodros (known to the British as Theodore) of Ethiopia had imprisoned some missionaries and two British government representatives, having failed to persuade the British government to send him military support against his adversaries at home, where his position was increasingly precarious.  The British sent an expedition under Sir Robert Napier which besieged Tewodros in his fortress of Magdala.  As the British captured the fortress, Tewodros committed suicide rather than face captivity.
