We Drew Our Canoe Ashore Here, And, On A Limited Area Of Clean Sand, Ferajji, Our Rough-And-Ready Cook, Lit His Fire, And Manufactured For Us A Supply Of Most Delicious Mocha Coffee.

Despite the dangers which still beset us, we were quite happy, and seasoned our meal with a little moral

Philosophy, which lifted us unconsciously into infinitely superior beings to the pagans by whom we were surrounded - upon whom we now looked down, under the influence of Mocha coffee and moral philosophy, with calm contempt, not unmixed with a certain amount of compassion. The Doctor related some experiences he had had among people of similar disposition, but did not fail to ascribe them, with the wisdom of a man of ripe experiences, to the unwise conduct of the Arabs and half-castes; in this opinion I unreservedly concur.

From Murembwe Point, having finished our coffee and ended our discourse on ethics, we proceeded on our voyage, steering for Cape Sentakeyi, which, though it was eight or ten miles away, we hoped to make before dark. The Wangwana pulled with right good will, but ten hours went by, and night was drawing near, and we were still far from Sentakeyi. As it was a fine moonlight night, and we were fully alive to the dangerous position in which we might find ourselves, they consented to pull an hour or two more. About 1 P.M., we pulled in shore for a deserted spot - a clean shelf of sand, about thirty feet long by ten deep, from which a clay bank rose about ten or twelve feet above, while on each side there were masses of disintegrated rock.
