'The author was stated to have been a large landowner in the Transvaal at this period, "well informed on all questions connected with the Transvaal Republic." Generally speaking, Mr. Regan writes from the pro-Boer point of view, and referring to the Jameson Raid he asserts that "in his opinion it had given the Boer government a new lease of life for at least ten years, or in any case during Kruger's lifetime.' - Mendelssohn vol.II, page 205.
