Excerpt

minho de facil percurso por onde se abrisse communicação para as minas, quando vim a saber pelos landins que o rio Bua era navegavel no tempo das chuvas, indo por elle as almandias até ao Nyassa; julguei portanto conveniente verificar a exactidão d'aquella noticia, e parti na direcção do rio.

Percorridos cerca de 30 kilometros, chegámos á margem do Bua, perto da serra Mechinge, isto é, perto da sua origem, e seguimos rio abaixo ao longo da margem esquerda, mandando fazer repetidas sondagens, que nos davam sempre altura de agua superior á de um homem, durante dia e meio de viagem, até chegar á aldeia do Mambo de Chôoco, tributario de Mpesene. Do proprio Mambo soubemos que o rio era facilmente navegavel, o que eu mesmo tive occasião de verificar mais uma vez atravessando-o uns 80 kilometros a jusante.

No regresso a Mpesene aproveitámos ainda a occasião para visitar a residencia de Mocanda
