Abstract
South Africa has been welcoming visitors on a regular basis since the early 1850's when the mail contract was awarded to the General Screw Steam Shipping Company to provide a monthly service from England to Cape Town. In fact, the inaugral service arrived in Cape Town on the 27th January 1851 when the RMS Bosphurus arrived in Table Bay after a forty day journey. The passenger fare was the equivalent of R58,00 or +- US $27,00. If we can think of that journey in terms of time and money, it would be exactly the inverse to the trip experienced by overseas delegates to this Congress.
