In Addition To This The Two Rivers, The 'Como (Nkama) And Rembwe That Fall Into This Gaboon, With Several Smaller Rivers, Both Bring Down An Inferior Quantity Of Fresh Water, And That At Nothing Like The Tearing, Tide-Beating Back Pace Of The Ogowe.

As my brother would say, "It's perfectly simple if you think about it;" but thinking is not my strong point.

Anyhow I was glad to see the mangrove-belt; all the gladder because I did not then know how far it was inland from the sea, and also because I was fool enough to think that a long line I could see, running E. and W. to the north of where I stood, was the line of the Rembwe river; which it was not, as we soon found out. Cheered by this pleasing prospect, we marched on forgetful of our scratches, down the side of the hill, and down the foot slope of it, until we struck the edge of the swamp. We skirted this for some mile or so, going N.E. Then we struck into the swamp, to reach what we had regarded as the Rembwe river. We found ourselves at the edge of that open line we had seen from the mountain. Not standing, because you don't so much as try to stand on mangrove roots unless you are a born fool, and then you don't stand long, but clinging, like so many monkeys, to the net of aerial roots which surrounded us, looking blankly at a lake of ink-black slime.
