"your Company's station"

This is Matadi, the port town founded by Henry Morton Stanley in 1879. Situated on the left bank of the Congo River, 148 km from the mouth and about 8 km below the rapids that make the river impassable for a long stretch, it remains the chief sea port of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
