The Roosevelt Expedition On The March
| Roosevelt In Africa
The expedition on the march. - The porters swing off across the plain as if they carried nothing; they talk and joke among themselves as they go. At an average gait of three and a half miles an hour they will cheerfully do some sixteen or eighteen miles in a day, and on reaching the spot where camp is to be pitched, they will put up the tents and draw water and cut firewood before they think of resting.
