The Adooma Encampment Is Very Picturesque, For They Have Got Their Bright-Coloured Chintz Mosquito-Bars Erected As Tents.

Dr. Pelessier then insists on banging down monkey bread-fruit with a stick, to show me their inside.

Of course they burst over his beautiful white clothes. I said they would, but men will be men. Then we go and stand under the two lovely odeaka trees that make a triumphal-arch-like gateway to the Post's beach from the river, and the Doctor discourses in a most interesting way on all sorts of subjects. We go on waiting for the Eclaireur, who, although it is past four o'clock, is still down at Dumas' beach. I feel nearly frantic at detaining the Doctor, but neither he nor Mr. Cockshut seem in the least hurry. But at last I can stand it no longer. The vision of the Administrator of the Ogowe, worn out, but chewing Kola nut to keep himself awake all night while he finishes his papers to go down on the Eclaireur to-morrow morning, is too painful; so I say I will walk back to Dumas' and go on the Eclaireur there, and try to liberate the Administrator from his present engagements, so that he may go back and work. No good! He will come down to Dumas' with Mr. Cockshut and me. Off we go, and just exactly as we are getting on to Dumas' beach, off starts the Eclaireur with a shriek for the Post beach.
