The lecturer spoke with great eloquence, producing a marked impression upon his hearers. He traced the career of the great traveller from his birth at Denbigh, at a cottage situated within the boundaries of Denbigh Castle, to the present. He graphically described an interview he had with Stanley's mother soon after he had returned from his journey in search of Livingstone, which settled the then debated question of his voyage to America, his adoption oi his masters name, Henry Morton Stanley. He described the young hero in glowing terms, his march in search of Livingtone, and the details of the journey connected therewith his difficulties along the Nile, his conversion of the King of Uganda. Then the lecturer recounted his new venture in search of Emin Pasha, his arrival in England, and the receptions, he was favoured with at the hands of all. At the conclusion of the lecture, Rev. J. W.
