Hunger Has A Powerful Effect On The Temper.

When we had got a good meal of meat, we could all bear the petty annoyances of these borderers

On the more civilized region in front with equanimity; but having suffered considerably of late, we were all rather soured in our feelings, and not unfrequently I overheard my companions remark in their own tongue, in answer to threats of attack, "That's what we want: only begin then;" or with clenched teeth they would exclaim to each other, "These things have never traveled, and do not know what men are."
