HC Deb 12 May 1879 vol 246 c133

Sir, I have received information from South Africa which it may be of interest to the House to hear, as it conveys later intelligence from the Transvaal than any which has yet been published. It is dated Cape Town, April 27— High Commissioner at Pretoria telegraphs that Boers' camp broke up on the 18th inst. and all have dispersed quietly to their homes. The Conference between High Commissioner and Boers' Committee at Erasmus Farm took place April 12, lasted five hours and a-half, and passed off in a perfectly friendly manner.
