Scope and Contents note:
Outlines specifications for three boats that are wanted: firstly, "1 Yarmouth Yawl about 40 feet long" (". . . If I can get such a boat it will be far better than a Steam Launch for the soft gales of Zanzibar . . ."); secondly, "a Captains Gig from 20 to 23 feet long" (". . . I want her to row up rivers. The Yawl will take me to the mouths of rivers but the Gig must be taken up to the haunts of slavers... a peculiar feature of this gig is that she must have three bulkheads . . . so that if a hippopotamous attacks her & smashes her bows the boat will not sink."); and, thirdly, "Wanted from John [altered to James) Messenger Boat Builder. Teddington near London 1 boat built in sections. . .", of which Messenger has a model (" This boat must be shipped after me to Zanzibar as I only need her for Exploration of lakes in Inner Africa. When I start for the interior the two other boats will be sold to highest bidder").

Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1889 - 1904
General note:
Large type, edited and corrected in ink by Stanley including the over-pasting of part pages from "Through The Dark Continent. " Part of a collection of one manuscript and eleven privately printed lectures and addresses by Stanley, some with annotations, together with other material all formerly in the possession of Lady Dorothy Stanley. Biographical note (applying to all items in M184): Although "never published" it would seem that Stanley had his lectures printed for three reasons, ease of delivery, to register copyright (some of the above are "Entered at Stationers' Hall"), and to enable him to present a copy to hosts. However, the number that were printed must have been very small and they are excessively rare. There are ten printed lectures listed in the British Library Catalogue but only four of those appear to correspond to the above group (M184d, M184f, M184h, & M184l). No copies of any of the items in this group (M184a-l) are listed in the library catalogue of the Royal Geographical Society. These lectures are referred to by Lady Stanley in the Autobiography (p. ix), "The material includes, next, a number of lectures, upon his various explorations these he prepared with great care, but were never published. They were written after he had published the books covering the same travels and in the lectures we have the story told in a more condensed and colloquial way. "M184c is the accession number in the Russell E. Train inventory list of the Joseph F. Cullman 3rd Library of Natural History.

Item M163
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1900 October 6
Scope and Contents note:
Letter acceding to Pond's request for permission to publish portions of certain lectures by Stanley "with slight reservation." Speaks of being disappointed that Pond is not coming to London, and mentions his lecture to New York's "elite" in November 1890 and his introduction by Depew. He concludes: "Well, the long struggle between Boer and Briton is now rapidly coming to a close. Our success, though pretty thorough considering, is not of that kind that makes us boastful. Had a multitude of things been otherwise than as they were, or as they should have been, Kruger would long ere this have repented of his temerity in challenging England- but let us be grateful for the small mercy that in the end we see prospect for South Africa making amends for the past and becoming on the eve of the 20th Century, a land to regard with hope..."
General note:
M163 is the accession number in the Russell E. Train inventory list of the Joseph F. Cullman 3rd Library of Natural History. Chauncey M. Depew was a United States Senator from New York between 1899 and 1911, and a distinguished orator who introduced Stanley's first American lecture at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York City.

Scope and Contents note:
Commences "I began this lecture by describing the opinions held of Emin by the British Press ..." Thence follows Stanley's assessment of the man based on his experiences on the Expedition.
General note:
M184g is the accession number in the Russell E. Train inventory list of the Joseph F. Cullman 3rd Library of Natural History. Written entirely in Stanley's hand. These pages could have been prepared to be used in conjunction with M184F. Part of a collection of one manuscript and eleven privately printed lectures and addresses by Stanley, some with annotations, together with other material all formerly in the possession of Lady Dorothy Stanley. Biographical note (applying to all items in M184): Although "never published" it would seem that Stanley had his lectures printed for three reasons, ease of delivery, to register copyright (some of the above are "Entered at Stationers' Hall"), and to enable him to present a copy to hosts. However, the number that were printed must have been very small and they are excessively rare. There are ten printed lectures listed in the British Library Catalogue but only four of those appear to correspond to the above group (M184d, M184f, M184h, & M184l). No copies of any of the items in this group (M184a-l) are listed in the library catalogue of the Royal Geographical Society. These lectures are referred to by Lady Stanley in the Autobiography (p. ix), "The material includes, next, a number of lectures, upon his various explorations these he prepared with great care, but were never published. They were written after he had published the books covering the same travels and in the lectures we have the story told in a more condensed and colloquial way. "
