There are two prominent names connected with this volume.First the author related to Arnold Wilhelm Spilhaus (1855-1946) South African centenarian and commercial pioneer,and also Adam Tas,(1668-1772) An early Cape political leader,this book is therefore in good authoritive hands,as it sets out to describe not only who the first so-called first South-Africans were,but to set out the rules and regulations laid down to them by Van Riebeeck as he reminds this successor that the object in founding the Cape staition,was in order to provide easily accesible water and a adequate supply of refresments for passing ships.
