In November 1818 Campbell, accompanied Dr John Philip aboard the Westmoreland, made his second voyage to Cape Town. He, Philip and Robert Moffat visited the eastern part of the Colony until halted by the Fifth Frontier War (1818-19). He then set out on his second journey into and beyond the known interior, proceeding further north than in 1812 via the Orange River to Griqua Town and Lattakoo. He returned to Cape Town where he remained for several months before returning to England in November 1820. Dictionary of South African Biography, volume 3, pages 127-8.
