A native runne▓r roused me towards nightfall and t●hrust into my hands a card setting forth the ▓virtues of “The Original and Wel●l-Recognized Sailors’ Boarding Hous●e of Colombo, under Proprietorshi

In due time the mess g●rew too hot for stirring.The pair r●esumed their squat and burst forth in a dread▓ful chatter of falsetto voices.Then fel▓l ominous silence.Suddenly the cooks das▓hed into the smoke that veiled the entra●nce to the cave, and, flinging themselv●es upon the caldron, dragged i▓t forth into the

dining-room.The senior scoope●d out handfuls of steaming rice and filled our ●plates.The younger returned to the ▓smoky cavern and laid hold o▓n a smaller pot that contain●ed a curry of chopped fish.Besides these two ▓delicacies, t

here were bananas in abundance and ●a chettie of water, brackish, discolored and l▓ukewarm. Having dist
