During this campaign Tupper’s “unswerving loyalty to the British Empire” was questioned, arising out of statements attributed to him during campaigning in Quebec, and specifically in relation to volunteers being sent to the Boer War. These allegations were touted by the “Toronto News”, causing Tupper to have this collection of his letters to the Editor of that periodical beginning with one of November 18th, 1903 through to the latest sent on December 18th of that year. The booklet ends with and excerpt from the newspaper published on December 26th.
