Summary

KALULU, Stanley's faithful Young Companion. At Unyanyembe, in September 1871, an Arab presented Mr. Stanley with a little slave boy, named Ndugu Mhali = "my brothers wealth"; but he was re-named Ka-lu-lu, which is Kisuaheli (Swahili) for "the young of the blue-buck". He came to England with Mr. Stanley, and was at school there for more than a year. He was lost in one of the furious cataracts of the Lower Congo, in Mr. Stanley's latest expedition.
