The Committee was established following a meeting in 1879 at Stafford House, St. James, the home of the duke of Sutherland, and chaired by the duke himself. The objects of the organization were 'to furnish trained nurses and hospital comforts and to supplement arrangements for promoting the convalescence of the sick and wounded in South Africa,' similar to the scheme that had been established for the assistance of troops in the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-8. The party that was sent out comprised of Ross and Stoker, Bram Stoker's brother George, and seven trained nurses, both commissioners give brief accounts of the party's services in their reports, while a number of testimonials in the appendices attest to the appreciation with which their work was received; "I could not testify too highly to the excellent services rendered by these ladies [Sisters Edith King and Emma Durham] to the sick and wounded officers and men of Her Majesty's army who were treated at Ladismsith" (Memorandum from Thomas Babington, Senior Medical Officer, Ladysmith). Not in Raugh. Seller Inventory # 70454
