Prefatory note by Arthur Conan Doyle

It is a good work to preserve some of the heroic memories of South Africa, and so to renew the noble traditions of our race. We must not always trade upon the glories of the past. These little songs and epics will, I am sure, have this effect. I am glad, therefore, that Canon Rawnsley is publishing them, and I wish the book every possible success.

A. CONAN DOYLE.
