The photograph is mounted on a card SIGNED ON FRONT BY EACH of the four and with "Bloemfontein March 26th 1900" written beneath, apparently in Kipling’s own hand, and INSCRIBED ON VERSO BY THE PHOTOGRAPHER, "[illegible recipient] fr.

You can have breakfast in bed or [illegible] & play with the kids & the lion at your will. A good bed isn't a bad place to lie down. / Ever Sincerely / Rudyard Kipling." Additionally with the poem appearing on page 65, "General Joubert," transcribed at top and bottom of the page in what appears to be Kipling’s hand. (There is no apparent difference between the printed and transcribed versions.)
