'An account of a tour throughout South Africa in the latter part of the year 1898, expressing the views of the author on the current state of political and social matters in the sub-continent at this period. The volume is written from an imperialistic point of view, and the writer was evidently not prepossessed in favour of the cause of the Boers, and what he saw and heard during his stay does not appear to have changed his views in this respect to any extent. In the course of his visit to the Transvaal he interviewed President Kruger, and he devotes several pages to an analysis of his character, which may be summed up in the author's assertion that President Kruger was "the incarnation of Boerdom at its best."' - Mendelssohn.
