CHAP. I

Return from the Source of the Nile by Maisha — Come to the House of Welled Amlac — Reception there — Pass the Nile at Delakus — Arrive at Gondar

IT was on the 10th of November 1770 we left Geesh in our return to Gondar, and passed the Abay, as before, under the church of Saint Michael Sacala. We descended the hill through the wood, crossed the river Davola, and that night halted at a few huts, called Dembea, on the north-east side of the entrance of a valley.
