THE CHICAGO TIMES, July 18, 1872

* Henry Morton Stanley

The back page begins with column heads on the famed African Explorers Stanley & Livingstone: "STANLEY'S STORY" "The Great African Explorer and the Great American Reporter" "Stanley's Own Account of His Interview with Livingstone" "The Discoverer Narrates the Varied Experiences of His Strange Life" with more.
The very detailed report takes 2 1/2 columns and has many subheads including; "Stanley 
enters the Town Flying the American Flag" "Stanley & Livingstone Face To Face" "The Meeting" "The First Day with Livingstone". And within the text is one of the more notable utterances of the 19th century: "...when I first caught sight of him--the man with whose book on Africa I was first made acquainted when a boy--so far away from civilization...False pride & the presence of the grave-looking Arab dignitaries of Ujiji restrained me and suggested to me to say, with a shake of the hand, 'Dr. Livingstone, I presume?' 'Yes,' was the answer, with a kind smile. Together we turned toward his house..." then much more.
Eight pages, never bound nor trimmed, in great condition.
