Dr. Livingston, I presume

Into Africa, a book by Martin DuGard, quotes Dr. Livingston as writing, in his journals, that he had had relations with 300 African women. The minister was married at the time, his wife being back in England.

I once was to write a book called The Book of Secrets, about surprising and perhaps negative things about famous people. Florence Nightingale didn't believe the germ theory of disease, for example. Maybe I should consider working on such a book again. (The other book was turned down by a possible publisher after an editor inserted really raunchy stuff.)
