Chicago Tribune Dec. 18, 1899

Dundee Postmaster Experience.

"H. H. Paris, postmaster at Dundee, Natal, writes to the London Daily News from? Of how real war looks to a civilian. He saw General Penn Symons brought in mortally wounded. "He was suffering intense agony, says Mr Paris, but his first words were: O. tell me, have they taken the hill yet?’  That was at 10:20 a. m and the hill was not taken for hours later. After the doctors had injected Morphine his pain was easier, and he said he would be with the column on the following day. Instead of that he was under the sod.
“On the following afternoon I went up the hill with the burial party and saw our dead. There were eight officers awaiting burial lying side by side In an outhouse on the farm. Including Lieutenant Colonel Gunning, Lieutenant Colonel Sherston. Captain Pechell, and others; and in the next out- house were twenty-two men, exhibiting the most frightful wounds. In one house on the other side of the hill about eighty wounded Boers were lying with only one doctor to attend to them. They were down- hearted, and said they had no idea our artillery fire was so terrible."
