Book excerpt: Excerpt from My Command in South Africa, 1874-1878: Comprising Experiences of Travel in the Colonies of South Africa and the Independent States The noble efforts to found colonies which have been made by England have been rewarded by results unequalled either in ancient or modern times. Many problems have yet to be solved. One of the most important of these is, how to preserve the independence of the colonies without causing them to lose their filial affection for their mother country. Some of the difficulties of this problem will be illustrated in the following pages. They contain descriptions of the country and anecdotes of its inhabitants. The Book is divided into five parts. Chapters I. to XI. contain an account of a journey from Cape Town to the Eastern Frontier, the Free States, and Basuto land. Chapters XII. to XVIII. describe my visit to Pondo land and Natal. In Chapters XIX. to XXII. I give an account of the threatened rebellion in the Diamond Fields, and the expedition sent to check it. Chapters XXIII. to XXX. deal with the annexation of the Transvaal; and Chapters XXXI. to XLI. are devoted to a description of the war on the eastern frontier of the Cape Colony.
