Witbooi to Leutwein: (…) The fact that I do not want to be subordinate to the German Emperor is not a sin, guilt or dishonour that justifies you imposing the death penalty on me. I beg you again, dear friend, (…) do not attack me and leave me in peace. Leutwein to Witbooi: The fact that you don’t want to submit to the German Reich is neither a sin nor a fault, but it is dangerous for the existence of the German protectorate. So (…) all further letters in which you do not offer me your submission are useless.
