Abstract
Route taken by Lieut.-Col. Piper and Lieut. Jervois through Natal, crossing the Drakensberg into the present Free State and on to the Eastern Cape. Names of settlers and their farms are noted along the route. The Drakensberg has been placed, by Jervois, in its correct position. Contemporary printed maps did this incorrectly.
