THE national anthem Of the rsoers was written ny an old lady who is at present living a peaceful, obscure life in Holland. This lady (Miss Catherine Felicia Van Rees) was born in Holland, at Zutphen, in 1831. She is an excellent musician, and in her youth she composed several operettas which were performed by the Choral Society of Utrecht. In 1875 Mr. Burgers, who had become President of the South African Republic, begged her to write a natio-,al anthem for the Transvaal, and in a few hours the lady did so by writing both words and music. The burghers were so pleased with the com- position that the Volksraad of Pretoria officially accepted the work and sent Miss Van Reea a letter 8f thanks ami congratulation*.
