Burton disputed this and the two men fell out. Speke was then selected by the Royal Geographical Society to mount a further expedition in 1860-63, his account of which was published in 1863 (see lot 289).

Burton and Speke were due to debate the question at the RGS in September 1864 but Speke died in a shooting accident the day before the planned debate.
