Letter to Sir George Grey from Henry Morton Stanley

Author: Henry Morton Stanley
Ref No: GL S47.1
Date Created: 9 January 1892

In November 1871 Henry Morton Stanley found Livingstone at Ujiji and his "Dr Livingstone, I presume", became a famous catchcry. In 1877 Stanley went back to Africa as part of the "rescue" of the Governor of Equatoria, Eduard Schnitzer, otherwise known as Mohammed Emin. The march through the Congo, the Great Forest near Lake Albert, to Wadelai decimated the party of 800. According to Stanley it was a "region of horrors".

In 1892 he writes to Grey and speaks of his admiration for him. He discusses the joy he experienced when reading the letters of his friend David Livingstone, held in Grey’s possession.
