Source: Diary of the siege of Mafeking by Edward Ross

Friday, 17 November 1899

Enemy began sniping [at] us at daylight this morning.

Hellawell, the war correspondent for the Cape Times, and Reuter’s special runner (the Yankee who came in the other day) left last night to attempt to get through the Boer lines to Kuruman. It is to be hoped they get through. 

At 9.30 old Creetje gave us five 94-pounders, the first of which went through the front of the Mafeking Hotel, knocking out the whole of the sitting-room.
