The Doctor And His Little Party Arrived On The 18th July, 1866, At A Village Belonging To A Chief Of The Wahiyou, Situate Eight Days' March South Of The Rovuma, And Overlooking The Watershed Of The Lake Nyassa.

The territory lying between the Rovuma River and this Wahiyou village was an uninhabited wilderness, during the transit of which Livingstone and his expedition suffered considerably from hunger and desertion of men.

Early in August, 1866, the Doctor came to the country of Mponda, a chief who dwelt near the Lake Nyassa. On the road thither, two of the liberated slaves deserted him. Here also, Wekotani, a protege of the Doctor, insisted upon his discharge, alleging as an excuse - an excuse which the Doctor subsequently found to be untrue - that he had found his brother. He also stated that his family lived on the east side of the Nyassa Lake. He further stated that Mponda's favourite wife was his sister. Perceiving that Wekotani was unwilling to go with him further, the Doctor took him to Mponda, who now saw and heard of him for the first time, and, having furnished the ungrateful boy with enough cloth and beads to keep him until his "big brother" should call for him, left him with the chief, after first assuring himself that he would receive honourable treatment from him. The Doctor also gave Wekotanti writing-paper - as he could read and write, being accomplishments acquired at Bombay, where he had been put to school - so that, should he at any time feel disposed, he might write to his English friends, or to himself.
