However, during a residence at Tete, some envoys from the court of King Cazembe paid him a visit, and in consequence of the information afforded by them, he decided to organise an expedition with a view to carrying out the Royal instructions. The journey was commenced on July 3, 1798, Lacerda keeping a diary and a journal, and penetrating right up to the capital of Cazembe. The journal came to an end on October 2, and the traveller died on October 18. The expedition, however, was continued under the command of the chaplain, F.J. Pinto, who kept a record of the journey and visited the King of Cazembe (...) and finally returned safely to Tete at the close of the year 1799 (...)."
