About this work
Dialogue includes: Dr. Punch. "Plenty of fresh air and as much exercise as possible to be taken freely!" ["Dr. Jameson's painful indisposition we feel sure will be lamented in the Transvaal as much as in this country .... nor will the most exacting of his enemies complain if he is released, for reasons of health, before the expiration of his sentence." - Standard, November 28. "I am in a position to state that President Kruger personally is not opposed to the release of Dr. Jameson." - From Pretoria. Daily Telegraph, November 28. (Dr. Jameson was President Kruger's doctor, and saved his life.)]
