Excerpt from The Staff Work of the Anglo-Boer War, 1899-1901: Embodying Some of the War Letters Sent to the 'Morning Post' From South Africa To My Readers, I feel that it is a little presumptuous of me to offer the public a volume on the "Staff Work of the War," and I am all too conscious of its shortcomings. But if my friends and critics come to the conclusion that in spite of its defects, it serves a useful purpose in setting forth the work done by the non-combatant branches of the army, then I shall feel my efforts will not have been quite in vain. I was induced to take up public writing in connection with the Anglo-Boer War of 1899-1901, for the Morning Post, by a mis-statement that appeared in the Cape Times as to my duties whilst nursing sick prisoners of war on board the Manila in Simons Bay. My letter to the Editor correcting this error led me to give a short description of the medical work then being done amongst the prisoners, both in the transports and in the hospitals. At that time there were many deaths amongst them from enteric fever, and a feeling of uneasiness was abroad that all was not being done by the authorities for their relief and to combat the disease. My testimony had a decidedly reassuring effect on public opinion, as is proved by many letters that I received from both English and Dutch in the Colony. Since the last Soudan campaign my journalistic propensities had found no outlet, neither had I sought one in South Africa.
