Organisations linked to event
Reference
The Times (6 May 1890)

“Mr Stanley's address divides itself into three main heads - the description of the forest region, with its primeval inhabitants, the pygmies, the investigation of the ethnography of the Equatorial region, and the elucidation of the geography of the real and ultimate sources of the Nile. Of the vast forest region and its impenetrable and perpetual gloom Mr Stanley's description conveyed a vivid impression to his hearers, while the effect of his words was enhanced by the spectacle of the wilderness of green on the enormous map which served to exhibit his route to the assembled multitude he was addressing.”

Notes

Many thanks to Richard Dacre for the Times reference to this event.
