= Mendelssohn III, p.912: "(...). The objects of the expedition were the suppression of slavery, and the exploration of the South Central Lake system of South Africa, and, with regard to the former, Dr. Livingstone appears to have been greatly distressed at the fearful cruelties of the slave dealers, and the sufferings of the helpless captives are stated to have been of the most awful character. (...) At last Livingstone escaped from the scene of these atrocities, and succeeded in starting for Ujiji, where he arrived on October 23, 1871. Five days later he gained new life and courage by the welcome and unexpected arrival of H.M. Stanley with supplies and letters, and the latest news from Europe. He soon regained his energy (...) [Stanley] tried to persuade him to return to England and recuperate and then come back and finish his work, but the undaunted decided to go on, and Stanley left on March 14, 1872, taking Livingstone's despatches and journals to Europe. The last explorations were done in the vicinity of Lake Bangwelo, where, thoroughly broken down and worn out, the greatest traveller of modern times died on April 1, 1873, at Chitamb (...)".
