'In the Illustrated London News of Sept. 11th you wrote of the shame and agony the white man is suffering in Africa and I think you must be one in a thousand who understands our position. ...
'We are 4 million whites in a continent of 250,000,000 blacks. When all the Colonies became independent lands, and were also divided, they had control of the commonwealth & indeed are considering whether or not to throw England out of it. Because of their numbers they became valuable to the Asians, so they now control not only the Commonwealth, but the United Nations. ...'
