The following message of sympathy, signed by twenty-two thousand pupils of the Philadelphia public schools, was sent to President Kruger by a special messenger, who started April 9:—

"We, the undersigned students of the public schools of Philadelphia, the city where our own forefathers enlisted in their splendid and successful struggle against English oppression, desire to express to you and to the fighting men of the South African Republic their great admiration for their genius and courage that have checked English invasion of the Transvaal, and the undersigned extend their most earnest wishes that in the end the South African Republic will triumph over England in a war in which the Boer cause is noble, the English cause unjust."
