This collection is made up of four notebooks, several maps, photographs, and lantern slides of Mr. Glave's 1891 travels with Jack Dalton. Together they opened the "Dalton Trail" (Skagway to Kluane), and were successful in using pack horses in Alaska
Relates to the conversation Glave had with Herbert Ward, traveler, artist and member of the Rear Guard, relating to the Rear Guard and Major Barttelot's conduct. "I, not having been an officer of that expedition, could say nothing from personal experience, but the spirit of Ward's conversation at all times, condemned Major Barttelot's mismanagement at Yambuya-- his harsh inhuman treatment of the Zanzibaris & Soudanes, who were lashed up and flogged for the feeblest offence, his inconsistent, high-handed and tactless dealings with Tippu Tib & his tyrannical behavior to the other white officers of the Rear Column were often mentioned.".
Glave asks Pond how he is doing and tells him he expects to be back in the States in the spring of 1895 "if my breath is not cut off at the meter ... I must say, I am not dead in love with Africa, I believe I could worry along allright [sic] in civilization without a return trip to the country ...".
In his book In Darkest Africa, Stanley says "Sali, my boy, is the cleverest spy in the camp. How he obtains his information I do not know ... He is in the counsels of the captain ... Of course he has many subordinate informers to assist." Sali's testimony regards the conduct of the naturalist and traveler James Sligo Jameson and Major Edmund Musgrave Barttelot, and the decline of the Rear Guard
