Seite 414 - ... from the size of a pin's head to that of a pea ; scattered through a large body of sand or clay ; and in this state it is called by the Mandingoes sanoo munko,
Seite 370 - It was rather trying for me, because I knew that the Chiboque would aim at the white man first ; but I was careful not to appear flurried, and, having four barrels ready for instant action, looked quietly at the savage scene around.
