Excerpt from Through Timbuctu and Across the Great Sahara: An Account of an Adventurous Journey of Exploration From Sierra Leone to the Source of the Niger, Following Its Course to the Bend at Gao and Thence Across the Great Sahara to Algiers
In the meantime I had not been idle, as I was well aware of the time required before official sanction would be received. I had calculated the kind and amount of stores necessary, and these with my ammunition were on their way out from England.
In the Niger valley almost every kind of West African game is to be found, including elephant, lion and giraffe. My armament consisted of a '303 magazine sporting Lee Speed ri e, a '450 Cordite Express and a 12-bore shot-gun. I took good care to be amply provided with ammunition, not only for sporting purposes, but also for self-defence, as my journey was not wholly without danger. I calculated on getting a good supply of fresh meat by my gun, and so my stores consisted chie y of such articles as our, tea, jam and some soups. I reckoned that the journey would take about five months, and had sufficient supplies to last me that time.
