Their published account of the adventure, complete with near-starvation, went into nine editions by 1901. In 1864, he returned to Cambridge, and gained his MD by 1865. His progress through the Royal College of Physicians was assured, and his professional life began with election as physician to the Western General Dispensary in 1865, and assistant physician to St Mary’s Hospital in 1867.
