Its activities mark the beginning of African exploration in a systematic way, as well as the furthering of British trade and political prestige on that continent. This association was later merged into the Royal Geographical Society. The first concern of the African Association was the River Niger - where was its source and what was the direction of its flow, etc. The first four expeditions were unfortunate for the leaders, Ledyard, Lucas, Horneman, and Houghton, all of whom either died while enroute or were murdered by the fanatical Moors. The fifth, that of Mungo Park, was rich in geographical results, though he too died on his second expedition' (Cox I, p.388).

JESUITS EXPULSION. EDIT D'EXPULSION DES JÉSUITES DE TOUS LES ETATS DE LA COURONNE DE PORTUGAL. (Lisbonne), Imprimée dans la Secretairerie d'Etat des Affaires du Royaume, (1759).Sm.8vo. Wrappers. 16; 12 pp. First edition; bilingual: French and Portuguese. - Official decree by the Portuguese king Jospeh I of the 3rd of September 1759 in which the Jesuits were expelled both in Portugal and in its colonies. There were long-standing tensions between the Portuguese crown and the Jesuits, which increased when the Count of Oeiras (later the Marquis of Pombal) became the monarch's minister of state, culminating in the expulsion of the Jesuits in 1759. The Távora affair in 1758 could be considered a pretext for the expulsion and crown confiscation of Jesuit assets. According to historians James Lockhart and Stuart B. Schwartz, the Jesuits' 'independence, power, wealth, control of education, and ties to Rome made the Jesuits obvious targets for Pombal's brand of extreme regalism'. By this decree the Portuguese colonizers secured the expulsion of the Jesuits. [Boeknr.: 32840 ]
