Punch,  45 (1863), 12.

Who Discovered the Source of the Nile?



Poetry, Drollery


Physical Geography, Discovery, Controversy

    Responding to Charles T Beke's answer to the question posed in the title, Punch insists that since '"Guess" is a worse dog than "Seek"' and Beke only 'marked in some map / What Speke went to', then he 'musn't cheek Grant and Speke'.
