"...the idea has been continually in my head that we should yet do some good to africa together..."
An indefatigable Livingstone presses onward in the last months of the Zambezi expedition. After five years in the region, sickness, exhaustion, and a dreadful journey towing their steamer the Lady Nyassa up to the Murchison cataracts, Livingstone's party had received news of its recall to Britain on 2 July. Livingstone here encourages his reluctant engineer George Rae to hasten his work preparing the steamer for the trip down-stream and out of Africa. Livingstone nevertheless writes with enthusiasm about yet another dangerous expedition to occupy these last months, which he here hopes Rae will join, travelling back up towards Lake Nyasa to explore the sources of the regional slave trade.
