London, John Murray, 1903 [Murray's Imperial Library edition].
Octavo, [iv], 167, 8 (publisher's catalogue) pages.
Murray's Imperial Library colour pictorial cloth a little flecked and rubbed; top edge foxed; acidic endpapers discoloured, with trifling surface abrasions to the front endpaper; inner hinge slightly cracked and with slight (chiefly surface) tears; a very good copy.
The letters were written to Sir Bartle Frere 'in regular succession, from a date shortly before the war broke out.... The writer is a man who has long been resident in South Africa, and has held more the position of onlooker than of participator, in its political and commercial affairs. He is not connected with gold mining, he has carefully watched events, and he is an honest English gentleman'.
