Edmund Garrett, the writer of these letters, was editor of the Cape Times from mid-1895 until his health collapsed in 1899. He appeared to his contemporaries to have exerted a significant influence on affairs in the last few years before the South African War. Whether they felt this to be for good or ill depended, usually, on the political allegiance of the observers and their views of the cause of the conflict of 1899-1902.
