Journalist and African explorer Henry M. Stanley describes the expedition he led into the interior of Africa in a rescue action known as the "Emin Pasha Relief Expedition" from 1886 to 1889.
Emin Pasha was a naturalist, physician, and governor of the Egyptian province of Equatoria. A jihad against Ottoman rulers that had started in 1881 isolated Equatoria from outside contact by 1883.
Stanley delivered this speech in Brooklyn, New York, on November 12, 1890, after his return from the "Emin Pasha Relief Expedition."
