Description
Afghanistan and South Africa A Letter to the Right Hon. W. E. Gladstone, M. P., Regarding Portions of His Midlothian Speeches by Bartle Frere Book Description The following computer-generated description may contain errors and does not represent the quality of the book: Sir, In the course of a political tour in Scotland in 1879 you introduced my name in some of your many speeches as one of the principal instigators of a foreign policy, which you denounced as wicked and aggressive, as depraving the morality, and ruining the finances, of England. These speeches, I need hardly say, produced an immense effect on public opinion, both in England and in the distant Colony where I was then on duty. It was impossible for me to make, at the time, any effectual reply to what was so said. It was nearly a month before the report of the speeches made in Midlothian could reach the Colony - another month before any answer could be received in England, even by return of post. Large numbers of my countrymen had consequently, in reliance on your testimony, condemned me, and all I had done or proposed to do, in South Africa, before I could be heard in my own defence; and I was recalled from South Africa at a very critical period in the fortunes of its Colonies. To the personal results to myself I have no intention to refer; but I believe that the statements and opinions to which those speeches gave currency and authority, caused, and are still causing, infinite mischief in South Africa. They have retarded the prosperity and progress of the European Colonies in that region, they have laid the foundation of wars; and raised very serious obstacles to the religious, moral, and political advancement of the native races.
