Sida 735 - Oct. 2oth says :—" If we judge his descriptions by the vivid impressions they leave, we feel inclined to give them very high praise.
Sida 611 - American flag, the first ever seen in these parts, at the head of a caravan, told me the nationality of the stranger.

Sida 712 - Sir, I am directed by Earl Granville to acknowledge the receipt of a packet containing letters and despatches from Dr. Livingstone, which you were good enough to deliver to her Majesty's ambassador at Paris for transmission to this department; and I am to convey to you his Lordship's thanks for taking charge of these interesting documents.
