"The first letter, written over a period of one month, covers the siege [of Ladysmith].

By agreement between General White and Boer Commandant-General Joubert, the first sick and wounded had been permitted to leave Ladysmith for Intombi Camp on Sunday, November 5.

After a period of some months' convalescence, he returned to South Africa, where he joined his company in the Eastern Transvaal.

In contrast to their immediate European antecedents in Tibet, Huc and Gabet were not interested in trade or politics. They came in search of converts and, to this extent, belong to a much earlier tradition of pioneers. ... Though charged with the same zeal for conversions, Huc and Gabet showed none of the bigotry of their clerical predecessors. They were willing to conform to Tibetan ways, to seek out common ground in matters of doctrine and ritual, and to acknowledge piety in whatever guise. ... But what sets… Read more
