The writer was connected with the \"South African General Mission,\" part of whose work lay with the soldiers and sailors in South Africa. On the outbreak of the war in 1899, the officers, who had been in charge of the two Soldier\'s Homes and the Sailor\'s Rest in Cape Town, were despatched to the front, one of them dying at Ladysmith. There is some description of the scenes in Johanneburg during the Jameson Raid and the early days of the war, when the representatives of the mission were ordered to leave the Transvaal.
