I LEFT London for Cape Town on March 24, 1904, proceeding thence to Chinde, and up the Zambesi and Shiré Rivers, to Blantyre and Zomba, in British Central Africa. In Zomba I reported myself to Sir Alfred Sharpe, and from him received much advice and assistance before leaving shortly for the Upper Shiré and Lake Nyasa. In the region of this lake I stayed, roughly, three weeks—one week on the gunboat anchored at the south end, one week ascending the lake, and a week in Karonga—before starting to cross the plateau to Tanganyika.
