158 year Anniversary

Historical Anniversary for Lydenburg of events 158 years ago occurs this week end on 26 February

In the course of doing some legal research I recently ran across this item which may interest to some at Kudu. It is the Appendix to a resolution of the Volksraad passed at Pretoria in 1860, namely The Agreement between the Government of the South African Republic and the Republic of Lydenburg for the establishment of a union between the two States, the negotiations for which commenced 26 February 1859 and finished at Rustenberg on 23rd November, 1859. It is quite a long document – so I attach only the first article.
Maybe we should begin negotiations for the establishment of the Republic of Kudu!
