"I Am A Lekoa (Englishman)," Said Livingstone. "We Don't Know That Tribe," They Replied; "We Suppose You Are A Mozunga (Portuguese)." Upon Livingstone's Showing Them His Long Hair And The White Skin Of His Bosom They Exclaimed, "We Never Saw So White A Skin As That.

You must be one of that tribe that loves the black men." Livingstone eagerly assured him that such was the case.

Sekwebu, the leader of his men, put in a word: "Ah, if you only knew him as well as we do, who have lived with him, you would know how highly he values your friendship; and as he is a stranger he trusts in you to direct him." The chief, convinced that he was an Englishman, received the party hospitably and forwarded them on their way.

The frequent appearance of English goods showed that they were approaching the coast, and not long afterward Livingstone met a couple of native traders, from whom, for two small tusks, he bought a quantity of American cotton marked "Lawrence Mills, Lowell", which he distributed among his men.

For another month they traveled slowly on through a fertile country, abounding in animal life, bagging an elephant or a buffalo when short of meat. Lions are numerous, but the natives, believing that the souls of their dead chiefs enter the bodies of these animals, into which they also have the power, when living, of transforming themselves at will, never kill them. When they meet a lion they salute him by clapping their hands - a courtesy which his Highness frequently returns by making a meal of them.
