Excerpt from Lost in the Forbidden Land
These weapons, being in holsters at my hips, always gave the dusky miscreants fair notice Of what they were up against when they attacked me. I had winged two or three of them in the course Of my wanderings, could speak their gibberish, whose basis is the Spanish tongue, and understood their nature so well that I was rarely in danger from even the lowest classes, among which are to be included the sullen, scowling negroes.
