Excerpt from The Story of the Captives: A Narrative of the Events of Mr. Rassam's Mission to Abyssinia

For instead of allowing Mr. Bassam to select his own route, or pointing out to him the shortest and best, he required him to go by Metemma (a caravan sta tion, situated on the extreme west of Abyssinia, almost on the Nubian frontier), involving a detour of three or four hundred miles. When such was the treatment experienced by the Mission at its outset, we can express no surprise at its results.
