On 7 Nov  in - 
1871 Henry Stanley  found the missing Scotsman, David Livingstone. 
Through a promotion sponsored by The New York Herald, Stanley, and
several companions, set out looking for Livingstone some eight months
earlier. (Stanley's fellow explorers died before this day.)  
Livingstone, an explorer and missionary had been missing for two years.
No white man had seen  him in six years. Stanley's search for Dr.
Livingstone ended at Ujiji, Africa.  He greeted the doctor, not with,
"Are you all right?" or "I'm so glad I found you," but with these famous
words, "Dr. Livingstone, I presume."
