Transcription

September 1, 1911. Rose early, about four o’clock, to see as much as possible of the river scenery. About seven o’clock we anchored in so-called Narrows, a narrow channel lined with palms, so narrow in some places that we could almost reach the outleaning trees as we swept past them. Wonderfully beautiful. Nowhere else had I ever seen such magnificent exuberance of tropical vegetation. On the immediate margin of the river the palms greatly outnumbered all other trees.
