Zulu Dawn General Lord Chelmsford: For a savage, as for a child, chastisement is sometimes a kindness. Sir Henry Bartle Frere: Let us hope, General, that this will be the final solution to the Zulu problem.

1880 Edition

Many thanks, Littlehand, for this link. (Although not intended for myself, but being on an open forum, I did have a look at it. Not judging or anything and I do hope you won't mind if I may offer something of an opinion on this.

I done a wee bit of reading up on the good lady who wrote the article and taking into account that children are often well affected by the tutorings and guidance of their parents amongst others, particularly in relation to the specific time period and area concerned, and would like to offer the following view and perhaps caution? Please do forgive me if I offend or seem impertinent as that is not my wish. Not to say that you do not apply caution, but rather to discover if I am on the right path myself.

It would seem that Lady Colenso was the daugter of Bishop Colenso of the Church of England. The Bishop was more than a bit at odds, it would seem, with the Church he represented. In fact, so much so that there was quite a stir and official publications were even presented to challenge and discount his views, which same views he was most likely teaching. One of the better known differences was his teaching on the "Two Adams". Whilst I am not intending to wade into all of that as it will detract from my current focus of Isandlwana, I do find that his behaviour was to my mind a little worth considering as it is such that we voften instill in our children.

Personally, I wonder why the Bishop, if he so disagreed with those who appointed him, did not step down from his appointment if he so disagreed? In conclusion, I find that I might be wiser to consider the writings etc of his daughter keeping this in mind? Adding to this, perhaps there is more reason to be cautious as the book, if I am not mistaken, has one primary objective which is to claim and support that Durnford, whom I believe she was in love with, was innocent?

Please, again, accept my apologies if I am "out of line" with this. I would like to hear your views and response and no need to use kid gloves if you are so inclined.

With due respect
Arthur

Interesting though this is for you, it does rather detract from the current thread of Frederic's question and might be better posted on a new thread or pm'd to LH.
Many of us here could give lengthy answers on Fanny, her father, Durnford, Durnford's brother, the Established Church, and Fanny's relationship with all of them but it would ruin the present discussion.
Please forgive me for 'sidelining' your question by asking you to put it elsewhere (similar in fact to what the Church did with Colenso).
(With apologies to Admin.)
Coincidentally I've just done some work at a school built on the site of the Colensos' house in Buckinghamshire; a fraction of the house still remains.  The house and the school was and is called 'Elangeni'.  I very much 'heard' the past's echoes.
