Excerpt from United Australia, Vol. 2: A Monthly Review for Thinking Men and Women; September 20, 1901
Tho Boer may have been cruel at times, but, at least, he made the black man work and respect his master: and this I do know, he always gave the Boer in return better information than he gave us. For months we, have been spoiling our black brother, and paying him four times the wage of Tommy, and in the days to come he will show his gratitude by making it impossible for Boer or Briton alike to leave their wives and children unprotected.
In the mining centres of the Transvaal there will doubtless be a good local market for all kinds of fruit and farm produce, but both the outside world and the existent farmer will dispute it with the new comer, who, even if he be fortunate enough to secure a confiscated farm, will probably have to rebuild the homestead, and will certainly have to refence, as our columns never left a post standing in this woodless land.
