This seems a huge amount of money to pay for memoirs. My great grand uncle Abraham Simon Guttenberg (b 1873, Hull,UK) lived in South Africa from the age of 18 until the outbreak of WW1 in 1914, revisiting again a number of times after WW1, and he also wrote his memoirs whilst there. He met people like Mahatma Ghandi, and people who were looking for gold and diamonds (including the main Jewish families around Johannesburg). When he died, he donated his memoirs to Sheffield Public Library and anyone can read them there, for free.  Part of his memoirs (not the S. African part) were made into a radio programme by the BBC a few years ago. So you do not need to pay lots of money for memoirs.
