Spine-ends sl. dam.; spine sunned. = "In the course of the exploration of the Shiré River, Lake Shirwa was discovered, on April 18 1859, and on September 16 he [David Livingstone] arrived at lake Nyassa about two months before Dr. Roscher reached it. The Portuguese asserted, however, that Livingstone had not discovered the lake, and endeavoured to prove that they had known of its existence previously, but it appears that their object in making this statement was to make good their claim to the country".
