From the Niger to the Nile, Vol. 1 of 2

Excerpt from From the Niger to the Nile, Vol. 1 of 2 In the early days of the Expedition, before the shadow of death had fallen across our path, and when there were three eager and brave companions to share the work with me, I always had the idea in my mind that when we were safe home again we would go over the results of our work, each gathering the harvest of his special line for embodiment in a scientific record. At the same time I had hopes that a general history of our journey would some day be written by my brother, Claud, in whose literary capabilities for the work I had the greatest confidence. But, alas! those hopes were never to be realised, and only a few pages of notes and minute observations in a tiny, neat handwriting, and a few pretty and quaint descriptions in letters written home remain to show what that book might have been. His share of the work endures in the splendid map, which his co-worker, Mr. Talbot, brought home and finished with untiring labours. With my brother's death I abandoned all hope that the story of the Expedition would ever be written, and I intended only to collect the scientific records, publishing the notes on each department in separate proceedings.
