Descripción

4to, 2 pp. Thirty-nine lines of text. Clear and complete. Neatly and closely written. Begins by discussing two books recommended by Bower: Otto Hammann's 'World Policy of Germany' and a work by Sir Francis Younghusband. Hammann's book 'confirms what Sir Sidney Lee writes about the Kaiser's telegram'; he is pleased that Younghusband's, which he has not yet read, contradicts the story that 'Lord Ripon was prepared for such drastic measures'. He has been 'correcting the proofs of the 600-page history of South Africa which I undertook to write for Longmans Green five or six years ago'. He feels that 'the effort was worth making', even though some of his 'statements are tentative'. 'I have at least tried to push the rivalry between British and Afrikaaners into the second place, and give the first place to the much more fundamental issue between European and non-European'. In a long postscript he recommends to Bower Macmillan's 'Cape Colour Question', a book which he hopes, along with his, will 'have some effect on South African opinion on the Native Question'.
