Letter from E. Montagu White to Frederick Courteney Selous

Description:

E. Montagu White met with Governor Roosevelt and found him to be sympathetic to the Boers. However, Roosevelt did not think he would have an opportunity to assist those who are working for peace and conciliation. White thinks that American public opinion is overwhelmingly on the side of the republics. White does not regret having come to the United States but is finding it difficult to imagine a committee that would bring pressure on the administration to work for peace.

Letter from Hermann Speck von Sternburg to Theodore Roosevelt

Description:

The South African War has increased interest in mounted infantry in Europe and India, with some even advocating for a full army to be mounted. The gloomy news from South Africa is difficult, especially since many of the British admire the Boers. The British are seeking to get their candidate on the throne of Afghanistan but Russia is opposing them with its own influence. There are also tensions in the Persian Gulf as Britain seeks to protect its interests and Germany desires access to Kuwait Harbor as the terminus of the Anatolian railroad. There is a great deal of interest about President Roosevelt in India.
