"Lord Randolph Churchill's Brilliant Son," [London] Sunday Telegraph, February 18, 1900
Churchill's widely publicized exploits made him famous in Britain. In this appreciation by London's Sunday Telegraph, a feature writer said: "It is now a household tale how he led the fight of the armoured train, how he returned into the hands of the enemy rather than desert his comrades, how he escaped from Pretoria prison. Who has not read the story of his dangerous dash for freedom?" The article also predicted that his recently published novel, Savrola, would be "a really popular book."
