    More Information:

    Baden-Powell (1857-1941), a hero in the Boer War and the founder of the Scout movement in 1908, writes in part: "I am afraid that those Scouts must have been a great infliction upon you, but it was a happy outing for them & that must compensate you to some extent. Thank you so much for all your kindness to them & to me."
