My Personal Experiences in Equatorial Africa free pdf Excerpt from My Personal Experiences in Equatorial Africa: As Medical Officer of the Emin Pasha Relief Expedition The greater part of my professional experience has been connected with the continent of Africa. My commission in the Army Medical Staff dates from February 5, 1881- and - having volunteered for active service in the Egyptian campaign - I left England in the September of the following year. I was first stationed at Alexandria, where the exigencies of warfare, and the calls of pressing professional duties, did not prevent me from receiving a great deal of hospitable kindness and attention from the foreign residents of that venerable metropolis. In addition to the necessarily large proportion of bullet wounds, and the other surgical injuries connected with the use of modern weapons of destruction, I had there a very large medical practice in the treatment of malarial fevers, gastro-intestinal inflammations, and fevers of a purely enteric (typhoid) type. In addition to the historical and classical associations connected with Alexandria, which will always tend to make it so attractive to the European visitor, the cosmopolitan character of the present population of the city makes it extremely interesting to the student of humanity. A large centre, in which the majority of the intelligent inhabitants speak at least half a dozen languages, affords peculiar facilities for the interchange of ideas on most subjects of public and private interest. The former predominance of French influence is still largely reflected in the tone of polite society and the prevalence of the language- and, undoubtedly, has conferred much liveliness and esprit on the members of the educated classes. This character contrasts forcibly with the sleepy, apathetic existence of the great majority of the natives, who are under the continuous influence of hasheesh, and who appear too lazy to brush away the flies from the lids of the single eye with which so large a proportion of the population is provided.
