  A.Holtzhausen wrote: "Additives, such as wheat, maize and chopped prickly-pear leaves were scarce and expensive. 
In 1860  E. de Marillac began experimenting with imported lucerne seed.  The crop flourished in the limey irrigable soil of the Little Karoo river-flats.  So too did ostriches.  The protein and karotein-rich lucerne stimulated plumage growth.  Under irrigation lucerne production was so successful that three times more ostriches could be carried on these local river-flats than other less fortunate districts."

1876. Economic slump reported by Standard Bank on 21 August:- So far as the Cape Colony is concerned no great changes marked its progress until near the close of the half year. Public works have been progressing, the money expended thereon being much the same as during the previous half year. The Imports and Exports of the Colony have however, fallen off considerably, and hence there has been some reduction in its material wealth but though the losses sustained have in many cases been severe, we are glad to observe that the larger houses in which we are interested, with a very few exceptions, shew no signs of weakness. The only firm which has succumbed, having large transactions with this Bank, is that of E. de Marillac of Mossel Bay, and it is satisfactory to be able to report that there is a fair prospect of our coming out without loss...

The NEW YORK TIMES-1896 The Inhabitants of Cape Town Protest Against the Duties on Food. CAPE TO\VN. Oct. 10.-A largo public mass meeting was held here last evening, the object of which was to protest against the imposition of duties upon articles of food. After the meeting a crowd of 3,000 men, bearing torches, marched in procession to the residence of Sir J. Gordon Sprigg. Prime Minister and Treasurer of the Cape Colony, to whom their spokesman stated the object of their coming. The Premier addressed the crowd, stating that It would be Impossible to abolish the duties immediately, owing to the fact that the convention with the Orange Free State required one year's notice of the abrogation. One of the leaders of the crowd. O'Keilly, declared that the reply of the Premier was evasive, and another, Marillac, called attention to the crowd outside the grounds of the Premier's residence, who. he said, were ready to fight unless relief should be forthcoming. The Premier depreciated any evocation to violence. He was with the people in sentiment, he said, but the head of tne Government must fulfill the law. After an hours talk with the result us told above, the crowd shouted and sang songs suggestive of hanging the Premier. The tune was very Impressive and dramatic"
