Following the Equator: Chapter X
Text and images from The Oxford Mark Twain and The Gutenberg Project.
Locations and dates for the most part are from Mark Twain Day By Day, a massive work by David Fears
(See notes marked MTDBD).
Not about his travels but about the initial colonization of Australia with English convicts and their harsh treatment with the cat-o-nine-tails.
Twain ends on a positive note with a listing of conditions current at the time of his visit there.
