The dispatches and enclosures transmitted to and from Downing Street during Sir George Grey's administration, together with a mass of evidence on South African affairs, in the libraries at Capetown and Auckland, furnish sufficient material for an exhaustive study of Sir George Grey's career as Governor and High Commissioner.

Of the material in the libraries special mention may be made of—

1.In the South African Library, (a) pamphlets and reports dealing with the condition of the Native Tribes of South Africa; (b) a map of British Kaffraria showing the distribution of the tribes at the beginning of his administration.

2.In the Auckland Library, (a) A valuable collection of letters and papers dealing with Grey's administration in South Africa; (b) two maps, one of Basutoland showing Major Warden's line and some of Sir George Grey's modifications; the other a general map of South Africa in 1856.
