A South African Bibliography, volume 2, page 442, 'Mr Grey disapproved the sending of contingents from New Zealand to South African War. He wrote an article in the New York Times which led to the correspondence with the Premier.' (3 copies listed).
In an article in the New York Times, dated 10th June 1900 under the headline Jingoism in New Zealand: Correspondent May Be Prosecuted for Letter in the New York Times, the following appears, 'A few days ago Mr. Grey issued his second pamphlet, which contains, inter alia, the literature of the peace party of Great Britain, which was sent out to the colonies for publication, but was suppressed, and now for the first time sees the light of day here.'
A later article dated 2nd September 1900, summarises how the Premier of New Zealand Richard Seddon had dismissed Grey from his position of Chief of the Parliamentary Reporting Staff (Hansard) and following his continued defiance forced him to leave the country.
