I Conscientiously Believed That A Diet On Potted Ham, Crackers, And Jellies Would Make Me As Invincible As Talus, And That I Only Required A Stout Flail To Be Able To Drive The Mighty Wagogo Into The Regions Of Annihiliation, Should They Dare Even To Wink In A Manner I Disapproved.

The first box opened contained three tins of biscuits, six tins of potted hams - tiny things, not much larger than thimbles, which, when opened, proved to be nothing more than a table-spoonful of minced meat plentifully seasoned with pepper:

The Doctor's stores fell five hundred degrees below zero in my estimation. Next were brought out five pots of jam, one of which was opened - this was also a delusion. The stone jars weighed a pound, and in each was found a little over a tea-spoonful of jam. Verily, we began to think our hopes and expectations had been raised to too high a pitch. Three bottles of curry were next produced - but who cares for curry? Another box was opened, and out tumbled a fat dumpy Dutch cheese, hard as a brick, but sound and good; though it is bad for the liver in Unyamwezi. Then another cheese was seen, but this was all eaten up - it was hollow and a fraud. The third box contained nothing but two sugar loaves; the fourth, candles; the fifth, bottles of salt, Harvey, Worcester, and Reading sauces, essence of anchovies, pepper, and mustard. Bless me! what food were these for the revivifying of a moribund such as I was!
