Excerpt from Austral Africa; Losing It or Ruling It, Vol. 1: Being Incidents and Experiences in Bechuanaland, Cape Colony, and England

African natives are not dying out, but increasing and im proving, some tribes Slowly, others more rapidly, after contact with Christianity and with civilisation. The African hut in the Exhibition pointed to habits, but not to a people, slowly passing away. The native labourer washing diamonds pointed to the actual work Of the black man at present, as supplying the unskilled labour of South Africa, where it is abundant and cheap. Then the artisan work already men tioned pointed to the future, establishing beyond doubt the capacity of the race, and giving good ground for hoping that there is a useful future before them. It seems to me that statesmen, philanthropists, and politicians of all shades Should consider well the lesson of the South African court in the Colonial Exhibition, which epitomised the much misunderstood South African problem.
