Excerpt from The Desert of the Exodus, Vol. 2: Journeys on Foot in the Wilderness of the Forty Years' Wanderings; Undertaken in Connexion With the Ordnance Survey of Sinai and the Palestine Exploration Fund
And here I must make a confession: when I began writing these pages, ... I determined not to obtrude my own private sentiments into them. But, when a man has lived alone with another for ten months in one small tent, and that other, in hunger, danger, fatigue and illness, has always proved the same cheery companion and hearty co-operator, he may be pardoned if he cannot introduce his fel low-traveller's name without some mark of affec tionate remembrance and esteem.
Before asking my readers to accompany us upon our journey, I will say a few words about the great and terrible wilderness, which was to be the field of our exploration.
