After Passing The
Chasm, They Got Back To The Stream Again.
They came out into the open country about one o'clock, and found to their
great joy that they were very near the place where the horses were
The horses were all ready for them, and Forester and Marco
mounted them immediately, and set out on their return home.
It was very pleasant riding along at their ease on horseback, after all
the dangers and fatigues that they had encountered. A part of the way
the road which they took lay along the shore of the river. Marco enjoyed
this part of the ride very much indeed.
They reached home about sunset, with an excellent appetite for supper.
Marco was very enthusiastic in his manner of giving his aunt Forester
an account of his adventures, and he said, in conclusion, that he would
just as lief get lost in the woods as not. It was good fun.
