How it works


39 pages, printed grey paper wrappers, a good copy.

Mendelssohn (Sidney) South African Bibliography volume 1, page 768: A brochure written as a counter blast to the pamphlet "The Revolution and After." There is a summary of the charges against the Boers and their government, and it is stated that, "when the National Union gave up all hope, the Capitalists stepped in." The allegations in "The Revolution and After "are denied in violent language, and it is asserted that a false letter, and an equally false telegram, were sent to Jameson, and that the Reform Committee were dumbfounded on receipt of the news that he had crossed the border. The author of Part II. purports "to give a true and impartial history of Jameson's ride, as furnished by one who was in it from start to finish," and full details are given of the Raid and the subsequent surrender. There is a government official list of the killed and wounded in Jameson's column ; also the names of the Reform Committee, and the amounts subscribed by different firms and persons under the name of the Relief Fund, a list of " The Charter(ed) Prisoners," and the official account of the Boers killed and wounded.
