Sample text

I’m there. ” “This. The Royal Geographical Society sees it as very important to explore this lake that Speke glimpsed. Under their auspices Lieutenant (now Captain) Speke has teamed up with Captain Grant of the Indian army; they’re heading a sizable and well-funded expedition; their mission is to go all the way up the lake, then continue on as far as Gondokoro; they’ve received a grant of more than £5000, and the governor at the Cape has put his Hottentot soldiers at their disposal; they left Zanzibar at the end of October 1860.

When the worthy captain passed away, Samuel Fergusson was twenty-two years old and had already traveled around the globe; he enlisted in the Bengal Corps of Engineers and gave a good account of himself in several skirmishes; but this life of soldiering didn’t agree with him; he had little interest in commanding, so he wasn’t keen on obeying. He submitted his resignation and set out for the northern regions of India’s peninsula, crossing it from Calcutta to Surat, surviving as both hunter and gatherer.

Dick chatted about the past, Samuel planned for the future: one looked forward, the other back. Hence Fergusson had a restless mind, while Kennedy was content with his lot. After his trip to Tibet, the doctor went nearly two years without any talk of further exploring; Dick assumed that his urge to travel, his craving for adventure, had simmered down. To the hunter’s relief. He figured that sooner or later the doctor was bound to come to a bad end; you can be an old hand with the human race and still not journey with impunity among cannibals and wild animals; so Kennedy urged Samuel to rest on his laurels, since he had done enough for science and more than enough to earn the gratitude of his fellow man.
