A Journey into the Herzegovina: Insurgent Hospital at Grahovo, 1876. '...the brave though barbarous mountaineers in the highlands of the Adriatic shore are deserving of English sympathy...the kindest, the most effectual, and the easiest measure of relief is to take the whole population - about equal to one London parish - and ship them off to New Zealand...The Colonial Government would grant a million sterling...for the costs of their reception and settlement, and they might have a few thousand square miles of virgin land...They would, moreover, as a hardy and laborious race of peasantry, bring to New Zealand a great accession of prosperity. They would increase both the productiveness of colonial industry and its demand for our manufactures, already greater, for the numbers of its population, than in any other country of the world'. From "Illustrated London News", 1876.
