OH THE IRONY! #books #doyle #boerwars #southafrica

Doyle quotes one Mr Jeppe, a liberal Afrikaner, on the matter of giving the Uitlanders (an immigrant community in South Africa in the late 19th Century) more rights:

“‘What will become of us or our children on that day when we may find
ourselves in a minority of one in twenty without a single friend among
the other nineteen, among those who will then tell us that they wished
to be brothers, but that we by our own act have made them strangers to
the republic?'”
