Reports that the 'opening of the railway which is linking Bulawayo to Cape Town has been the great event of the year in South Africa' (553). Also reflects that the 'season has been wonderfully mild', and 'in the gardens of Southern England there were more flowers in blossom in November than are often to be found in May. The chrysanthemum—the one great boon which we owe to Japan—has been singularly luxuriant' (563).
