Excerpt from A Picnic Party in Wildest Africa: Being a Sketch of a Winter's Trip to Some of the Unknown Waters of the Upper Nile
Tms short account of a few months' exploration in the wilds of Central Africa has no pretence to be considered from a literary point of view. It me... rely attempts to relate the experiences of a party of friends who spent a short period one winter away from the turmoil of civilised life. The relation of the little adventures they underwent is written in a plain, matter-of-fact way, and no attempt, it is hardly necessary to say, has been made to produce artistic cfiect. It purposes to show how much that is novel in the way of sport, and enjoyable in the way of travel, is within the reach of the ordinary person who wishes to undertake the experience.
