Subject : English Assignment No. 2

Section A (Reading)

1. Read the following passage:-

In March, 1861, I commenced an expedition to discover the sources of the Nile, with the

hope of meeting the East African expedition of Captains Speke and Grant, that had been sent

by the English Government from the South via Zanzibar, for the same object. I had not the

presumption to publish my intention, as the sources of the Nile had hitherto defied all

explorers, but I had inwardly determined to accomplish this difficult task or to die in the

attempt. From my youth I had been inured to hardships and endurance in wild sports in

tropical climates, and when I gazed upon the map of Africa I had a wild hope, mingled with

humility, that, even as the insignificant worm bores through the hardest oak, I might by

perseverance reach the heart of Africa.

as health and life remain. The failure of every former attempt to reach the Nile source did

not astonish me, as the expeditions had consisted of parties, which, when difficulties occur,

generally end in difference of opinion and in retreat; I therefore determined to proceed

alone, trusting in the guidance of a Divine Providence and the good fortune that sometimes

attends a tenacity of purpose. I weighed carefully the chances of the undertaking. Before

me, untrodden Africa; against me, the obstacles that had defeated the world since its

creation; on my side, a somewhat tough constitution, perfect independence, a long
