Mendelssohn (Sidney) South African Bibliography, volume 1, page 197,' Lady Mary Anne Barker (later Lady Broome) 1831 - 1911. The author had resided previously in New Zealand, and draws a comparison between Christchurch and Pietermaritzburg, which is by no means favourable to the latter city. The annoyances and discomforts of colonial life are discussed in a good-humoured and witty manner.'
