Mendelssohn (Sidney)South African Bibliography volume 1 page 658: It is stated that as early as August 22, 1899, the local paper, the Klerksdorp Mining Record, resolved to suspend publication, recognising that war was imminent. The burghers were continually employed in rifle practice, and by the end of September the mustering of the Klerksdorp commando commenced, under the command of Field Cornet Andries Cronje, and the narrative gives an account of the successive occupations of the town by the British and Boer forces. Ex-President Steyn and General De Wet addressed the Burghers during their visit : their speeches were confident, but it was observed that Steyn appeared dejected, and both the leaders were shabbily dressed ; thirteen days later the town was again in the hands of the British. There is a list of " Klerksdorpians " who joined the British forces.
