A Closer Union: A Letter on the South African Union and the Principles of Government. Schreiner, Olive, 1855–1920.
page: [7]

DE AAR, October 30, 1908.

Under a system of Federation one would require to give one answer; under Unification another: with a liberal franchise one answer; with restricted, another.

As far as possible I will try briefly to reply.
