As a solution of the problem Lord Grey suggested the

pro- motion of the natural and increasing desire for white men's goods. Everything that was possible should be done to develop this stimulus and create these wants. Meantime he assured the meeting that a healthy sentiment prevailed throughout Rhodesia. in favour of the most scrupulous justice in all dealings with the natives. That this is so in the case of Lord Grey and the officials now employed by the Company we have no manner of doubt, but unless we are greatly mistaken, many of the settlers and mining speculators will want to be very carefully watched. Their temptation, we fear, is to follow the evil example of the Boers in regard to the-natives.
