Thursday 4 July 1844
A Dutch farmer by the name of J. DE LANGE was, we regret to state, wounded by Kafirs under the following circumstances:- It appears that he, with some other farmers, were tracing the spoor of stolen cattle on Monday last. On coming to a deep kloof they perceived the cattle at a distance at the bottom of it, and as they were descending a Kafir fired at DE LANGE and wounded him severely – the ball, we are told, passing through the left arm, entering his left side, and coming out at his back. Other Kafirs were seen in the bush close to the cattle, upon whom the farmers instantly fired, and shot, it is said, three of them. The cattle were then abandoned by the farmers, who assisted in conveying their wounded companion home, a distance of 4 miles. The Kafirs, it appears, must have fled immediately on receiving the fire of the farmers, as all the cattle were discovered on the following morning. Assistant-Surgeon FRAZER was promptly dispatched to the assistance of the sufferer – and by the last accounts, we are glad to say, that the wound, though severe, was not expected to prove mortal.
Another Dutch farmer named Hermanus LOMBARD was also wounded by Kafirs with an assegai in the hand, on the 29th ult. He was looking for some oxen on his own farm, on the Koonap, when he was suddenly attacked by some Kafirs – by one of whom he was wounded as stated above.
Lt. ARMSTRONG, commanding the Mancazana Post, has been out patrolling during the whole of the week, spooring stolen cattle, - and patroles have been sent from Graham's Town and Fort Brown, to scour the country in all directions.
