Excerpt from Richard F. Burton, K. C. M. G., His Early, Private and Public Life, Vol. 2 of 2: With an Account of His Travels and Explorations

The journey continued, its tedium, toil and anxiety increased by the desertions of many of the porters, and by the unreasonableness and bad faith of many others. At last, on the 13th of February, the caravan breasted a steep and stony hill, sparsely clad with thorny trees; it was the death of my companion's (speke's) riding-ass. Arrived with toil - for our fagged beasts now refused to proceed - we halted for a few minutes upon the summit. What is that streak of light which lies below? I inquired of Sidi Bombay. 1 am of opinion, quoth Bombay, that that is't/ze water. I gazed in dismay: the remains of my blindness, the veil of trees, and a broad ray of sun shine illuminating but one reach of the lake, had shrunk its fair proportions. Somewhat prematurely, I began to lament my folly in having risked life and lost health for so poor a prize, to execrate Arab exaggeration, and to pro pose an immediate return, with the view of exploring the Nyanza, or northern lake. Advancing, however, a few yards, the whole scene suddenly burst upon my view.
