Missionary Travels and Researches in South Africa By Dr. David Livingstone
Livingstone, David — , explorer and missionary , was born on 19 March at Blantyre, Lanarkshire. He was the second son of Neil Livingstone — and his wife, Agnes — , daughter of David Hunter. Neil's father, also Neil , had been a tenant farmer on the island of Ulva, off Mull, who in had left with his wife and seven children for the cotton mills of central Scotland, and found work in Blantyre, on the River Clyde, with H. His sons became clerks for the firm, though Neil , the youngest, was soon apprenticed to the firm's tailor, David Hunter , whose daughter Agnes he married in The younger Neil then became a self-employed tea dealer. His first child, John , was born in Glasgow, but the family soon returned to Blantyre; they took over the one-room tenement in Shuttle Row, a block owned by Monteith's mill, in which Agnes had grown up.
He had a mythic status that operated on a number of interconnected levels: Protestant missionary martyr, working-class " rags-to-riches " inspirational story, scientific investigator and explorer, imperial reformer, anti-slavery crusader, and advocate of British commercial and colonial expansion. Livingstone's fame as an explorer and his obsession with learning the sources of the Nile River was founded on the belief that if he could solve that age-old mystery, his fame would give him the influence to end the East African Arab—Swahili slave trade. It is this power [with] which I hope to remedy an immense evil. Livingstone was born on 19 March in the mill town of Blantyre , Scotland, in a tenement building for the workers of a cotton factory on the banks of the River Clyde under the bridge crossing into Bothwell. He and his brother John worked twelve-hour days as piecers , tying broken cotton threads on the spinning machines. Neil Livingstone was a Sunday school teacher and teetotaller who handed out Christian tracts on his travels as a door-to-door tea salesman. He read books on theology, travel, and missionary enterprises extensively.

Командный центр главного банка данных располагался на глубине шестидесяти с лишним метров от земной поверхности, что обеспечивало его неуязвимость даже в случае падения вакуумной или водородной бомбы. На высокой рабочей платформе-подиуме в центре комнаты возвышался Джабба, как король, отдающий распоряжения своим подданным. На экране за его спиной светилось сообщение, уже хорошо знакомое Сьюзан.
