All Last Night, Until Nine A.M. This Morning, My Soldiers Danced And Sang To The Names Of Their Dead Comrades, Whose Bones Now Bleach In The Forests Of Wilyankuru.

Two or three huge pots of pombe failed to satisfy the raging thirst which the vigorous exercise they were engaged in, created.

So, early this morning, I was called upon to contribute a shukka for another potful of the potent liquor.

To-day I was busy selecting the loads for each soldier and pagazi. In order to lighten their labor as much as possible, I reduced each load from 70 lbs. to 50 lbs., by which I hope to be enabled to make some long marches. I have been able to engage ten pagazis during the last two or three days.

I have two or three men still very sick, and it is almost useless to expect that they will be able to carry anything, but I am in hopes that other men may be engaged to take their places before the actual day of departure, which now seems to be drawing near rapidly.

September 16th. - We have almost finished our work - on the fifth day from this - God willing - we shall march. I engaged two more pagazis besides two guides, named Asmani and Mabruki. If vastness of the human form could terrify any one, certainly Asmani's appearance is well calculated to produce that effect. He stands considerably over six feet without shoes, and has shoulders broad enough for two ordinary men.
