The following Statement regarding Moffat and Warner is a transcription of a hand-written document in the possession of the University of Cape Town Libraries for research purposes, (The Jagger Library) among the Stanford papers:
At the time of W. T. Brownlee's retirement I met Daver in a hotel in Pretoria. He came up to me and showed me a slip of paper on which were three names.
"Which of these," he asked, "do you consider the best for the Chief Magistracy?"
I read the three names. They were all known to me. Then I said,
"Why are you passing over the men in the Territories who have borne the heat and burden of the day? Is Clarence Warner not to be considered?"
"No," said Daver, "at a Cabinet meeting it has been decided that the Chief Magistracy is to go to a man outside the Native Affairs Department."
"If that is the case." I said. "you have left out the best man" and I gave the name of Mr. Bruce Moffat.
Daver did not think he would accept the position as there was a proposal to offer him the Auditor Generalship . I thought he would and at Daver's request I agreed to speak to Mr. Moffat in the matter. At the same time I said to Daver [Note: this name, though repeated several times, is difficult to read, looking more like 'Dower' but, here, appears clearly as 'Daver']
"I hope you won't pass over Clarence Warner when the Assistant Magistracy is considered."
I saw Moffat who subsequently accepted the position of Chief Magistrate of the Transkeian Territories and Clarence Warner was appointed Assistant Chief magistrate; later he succeeded to the Chief Magistracy.
