lt was a risky thing to uo into tbe country so
early, on account nf tbe fever; hut I knew that
tli.re was one or Iwo oth. rs after that lol ot ivory.
an I determined to have a try foi it. and take mv
chance of fever. 1 had gol so tough fn>in cont bu i!

" It waa a di. a.lful yeal of illness, that. I came, I
